i’ve never exhibited except when invited so i know nothing of the world of submitting for shows, but i recently saw this call for art, you see. the theme is drawing, and they’re open to any kind of drawing: representation or non-representational. when i first saw the notice, i knew in my bones this is a place
for nancy and me to put forth our collaboration. perhaps nancy’s drawings will be accepted here, as in welcomed with open mind and heart and seen as marks of expression, marks of meaning.

i’d finished with In Our Own Language 3, but then i removed 50 – yes: f-i-f-t-y – stitched drawings because i knew it would be better – as in more visually pleasing – if i did. but, let me tell you: it was hard to snip those threads, and harder still to stitch them a second time.

this call for art motivates me. time is nigh. i have only 4 days to stitch the remaining 36 drawings.

i lost a couple of weeks helping prepare mother for her move. it’s hard to fit my life in sometimes. but today, i’m fortified again. and stitching like you wouldn’t believe. the weather is threatening to tinker with the electric, and if it does, i’m prepare to stitch by candlelight. it won’t be the first time that’s been done.

    I hope that everything went well and that you made your deadline. It’s the photos that have to be taken….all the paperwork.

    I understand about the removing of the drawings. Did you put it up on your design wall to see? Best of luck in this undertaking, Jeanne.

    I love this in her own language piece. It hits me in the heart.xx

      Alas, Judy, I did not make the deadline. Couldn’t find a photographer, and my photos just simply aren’t good enough quality. Another exhibit will come along, and when it does, I’ll (hopefully) be ready. Thank you for always encouraging me. It means so very much. x

Pull up a chair why don't you, and let's talk . . .
