Nice call from Houston International Today. I've been notified my Mountain Lion hunting in Snow will place for a cash award in Octobers Festival. Quilts Inc.... informs cash prize winners but doesn't tell them about what prize... until the awards ceremony. Bottom line, they are hopeing you come so they give you some notice. Needless to say, I am THRILLED! Ofcourse I will be there. I'm arriving early enough to go to market before my teaching engagement starts. Last year, of the 4 awards in my category, three were international entries from outside the U.S. I placed 3rd last year and was thrilled beyond belief to have been the only American in the bunch.
I strongly suspect there is at least one other American in the mix this year. I can't wait to see Hollis Chatelains entry. It should be large powerful imagery, and beautifully executed.
