I'm totally stoked today.  I just found out that THREE submissions have been selected to hang in the Burlington Art Centre, Literary Arts Exhibition in the Perry Gallery from September 29th to October 28th.  "The Greats" took a long time to complete.  Why do I always underestimate the time each work takes??  It is machine stitched with white and grey threads on a whole cloth black silk background.  It was given an Honourable Mention by the judge, Janet Morton.

Here's a close up.

"Writer's Block" was juried in as well.  There are four blocks that are machine pieced, quilted, stretched over frames and embellished.  

The third entry was "Heidi".  The inspiration came from the book of the same name.  My mother had a copy while she was a child and passed it along to me.  I still cherish it.  This piece was actually completed a while ago as part of a Group of Eight Challenge.  Heidi is printed on hand-dyed fabric, machine quilted, and embellished. The edges were finished with a zig-zag stitch.


  1. Congratulations!

    My friend Judy Gingrich was juried into that show too, so I'll get to see all of your pieces live.

  2. Congratulations - they are all so beautiful and each work is very different.

  3. Fanastic Judy! Congratulations. I'm not surprised though because your work is always so amazing!

  4. Congratulations Judy. Honourable mention...awesome. Can't wait to see them up close & personal.
