Saturday brought many unexpected surprises. I met a new member to my statewide organization and really enjoyed chatting with her. During the day she shared a podcast that she likes to listen to and I've been binging listening to back episode ever since. How have I not heard of The Jealous Curator blog and podcast before? You're welcome! It has been making my walks and drive times stimulating and entertaining.
Saturday night at the opening of Fiber Focus, I was stunned to be the awarded the Weavers' Guild of St. Louis Award for Excellence in Woven Tapestry given in memory of Helen Wenzel by juror Marci Rae McDade, editor of the Surface Design Journal. I entered two pieces with the only true intention to get my work in front of Marci. My two pieces were accepted and to win an award just feel surreal.
