On Tuesday last, I opened my email to a very lovely surprise ... an invitation to send my self portrait, 'The Way I See Myself', to The Knitting and Stitching Show in the UK !!
Being invited is pure gold to me and of course I will send it. Wow !
So a new hanging device, a proper signature on the front, filling out the paper work and packing her up was on the agenda for today.
Last year, 2020, I had sent this same portrait to the Online Knitting & Stitching Self Portrait Competition. Hundreds entered and it was fun and easy to do ... what could be easier than sending a jpeg ?
Now they want toes & show the actual pieces in Alexandra Palace (7-10 Oct) and at Harrogate (18-21 Nov).
A lot of money for 6 days total ... but hey, when will I ever have this opportunity to show a new audience a piece of my work ??
