I'm totally thrilled! Recently I was invited to be an affiliate artist in the international Through Our Hands group based in England. My work was selected for the cover of the newest, quarterly magazine. It is a free, on-line publication with 76-pages. This issue also features Maggie Grey, Sue Benner, Cecily Sash, Karen Goetzinger, Dijanne Cevaal (whose work I have admired for years and years!), Jane La Fazio and others.

I am truly honored to be part of this group organized by the incredible Annabel Rainbow (whose work was easily my favorite at the Festival of Quilts in 2013) and Laura Kemshall (whose work I was introduced to at the same show). There's definitely a "pinch me" sort of moment about the entire acceptance. I've been experiencing a new sort of happy energy and I think it is showing in some of the art on which I am working. In the back of my mind, I feel freer to explore some of my more hair-brained ideas ... stretch the scope, size, and concept of my work. Who knows what's next!
Even though I have other blog posts this week, I'm linking this one to Nina-Marie's "Off the Wall Fridays" ... because I'm hoping to share this wonderful publication and group!
