How do you feel when you get a rejection? Me? I had a giggle, well, its probably a lot easier if you dont have expectations for certain situations. This piece along with another was sent back from the Embroiderer's Guild as not suitable for their 'Off the Wall Exhibition' (note the lack of much stitching!).

This started out as white cotton poplin fabric which was then 'rust dyed'. It then went through a series of screen prints, lito coal was added, plaster emulsion, painted bondaweb and finally a little stitching.

On a better note, I had an acceptance from a local gallery to submit work for their forthcoming exhibition so it's not all bad news. More on this to follow soon (i promise)

NCAD CEAD Exhibition - update

well, here I am having a giggle at the opening of the exhibition last night - some lovely work on display and a great evening to catch up with the students.

And then these little wild kitties cuddling and hungry were around this morning to greet me - they are looking like they could be adopted more each day if I can train my dogs not to want them for supper :0)
