She's going to Colorado!
I sent my two entries to the Front Range Contemporary Quilters show at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum last Friday. This is the first time I've dealt with having to send artwork--there's a learning curve for this stuff. I had bought a case of shipping tubes--check--and now had to open a UPS account to facilitate shipping--check. It's not that it's difficult, just frustrating when you don't know the vocabulary and keep getting timed out of the website. But I prevailed and the nice UPS man (who lives in Eagle Lake and makes local pickups and deliveries his last stop of the day) came and carted it away--check. So those babies are en route and should arrive Wednesday. That show runs from late April to July 26.
Now I have a few days to get the two for the Mancuso show boxed and sent. Unfortunately, they request boxes, not tubes--but I was able to share my case of ten tubes with quilting friends, so only have to store about half. I'm sorry that I won't be able to attend either of the shows in Colorado. The Mancuso show is May 1-4, at the same time as the Studio Art Quilt Association conference in Washington DC, and the one at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum conflicts with family obligations. Still, I am walking on air in my red dragon shoes.
