None of the three pieces that I worked on most of this year and submitted were juried into Quilt National13 and slap me hard if I put myself through that again. Talk about taking the joy of the process. Now I am free to follow through with updating my website and posting the work I've had to keep under wraps all these months. Can anyone tell me it's worth it? I passed on two opportunities to exhibit these locally and wonder if I made a huge mistake. This is really not sour grapes just a personal assessment of cost vs. value. I wonder how many artists have come to the same conclusion? All input is welcome.
and sincere and hearty congratulations to the hardy souls who made the cut!!
