I had an exciting discovery in the mailbox today! Flipping through the usual stack of bills, junk and business paperwork, I saw two envelopes from Mancuso Quilt Festival ! I had applied to the Wearable Art Competition, entering my dress, Silver Lining, and vest, Twilight Haze.
With bated breath, I ripped open the first envelope. Dear Ms. Lehrer Lewis.... your piece has been accepted! Breathlessly, I opened the second one.
Both were accepted and will be heading to Hampton, Virginia within the week. This will be my fourth year entering this show. My dress L' Amore di Vini and vest November Skies last year swept the show! I am even more excited about this year, as I feel my two pieces feature a lot more detail and technique from last year.
Wish I could be going with them to see the show! It runs Feb. 25-28th, 2016. I'll keep you posted on how they do!
