Good News to Share!

I actually have good news to share times two! This has not happened to me in a very long time so I am extremely grateful. First, I entered two pieces into Sacred Threads and both (Glimpses of the Dark Angel and Simpler Times) were accepted. An incredible 231 pieces were accepted. The quilts will be on display at Floris United Methodist Church in Herndon, Virginia, near Washington, D.C., from July 10-28. Wish I could be there. 
Today I got news that for the first time a part of the exhibition (40 pieces) will travel to a gallery, Sunderland Gallery, in Omaha, Nebraska. The exhibition will run for 8 weeks (September 15- November 10). I cannot believe it, both of my pieces will be a part of that exhibition! It is a good day.
