"If At First You Don't Succeed....Try Again"
And that is just what I did!!!! Last year, I submitted some photos of my mats to our Great Provincial Art Gallery called "THE ROOMS" during their "Art Bank of NL. Program" to see if I would be lucky enough to have one chosen for display, but alas, I did'nt. This year, when the time rolled around I thought I would try again and guess what? ONE WAS PURCHASED and will be displayed for a period of time and then put into the Archives there. I was so excited yesterday when I received the email telling me the good news that I was doing the "Happy Dance" for the remainder of the day. I cannot tell you how delighted and honored I am to be able to have just a teeny, tiny, display there. After all, that is where Deanne Fitzpatrick, our well known Newfoundland Fiber Artist, had a huge display two years ago and I went to see it and couldn't believe the beauty in her mats. I don't know which mat was chosen as I submitted three photos and I was not told yet which one it is. I have it ready to go at a minute's notice.
I have not posted for some time now because with canning....different kinds of pickles and relishes, tomatoes, moose meat, beets, etc. etc. etc...PLUS I am into my third of five mats that I need to have completed for people before the Holiday Season begins. Besides all that, we are planning to place some flooring in the whole of our house. I can only imagine the confusion that will cause...Wish me luck... :)
