 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 ?? 

Sooo worth it in my eyes !

piece and some packing materials on the board

I hate packing tape ! ... she's on her way !


  1. Sorry, I've only just picked up this post.

    WONDERFUL!! What a thrill that is and you're right to feel honoured that your lovely piece will be seen by such a big new audience. Knit and Stitch is a most popular and well-respected show - and definitely worth the cost of entry! I presume it will be at the Alexandra Palace in a couple of weeks' time? Sadly I don't think I will be able to go and see it 'in the flesh' as I'll be away. But ... maybe ... I'm thinking ...!! mmm ...

  2. Hi Margaret,
    I am very glad that you did see this post and appreciate the lovely things you have said about the K & S show.
    My selfie has shown at Alexandria Palace (Oct) and will show again at Harrogate, Nov. 18-21.
    I wish I could be a fly on the wall there ;)

  3. I'am glad to read the whole content of this blog and am very excited,Thank you for sharing good topic.
