A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to the Texas Quilt Museum in La Grange, TX for an art doll exhibit. This is a permanent collection of dolls to be shown periodically. It was the brainchild of the late elinor peace bailey. She asked cloth doll artists around the country to donate a doll to the museum and this was the first showing.

Our Women of the West exhibit that debuted at the International Quilt Festival in 2019 was expected to travel for two years. Then Covid happened and canceled all plans. But - good news! - we were invited to exhibit at the Brazosport Center for Arts and Sciences. The show is currently up and will be there through October 15. Several original pieces were sold and several new ones added.

The Contemporary Handweavers of Houston is celebrating 71 years! Our show "Weave Houston" is on view now at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. Due to Covid restrictions we were not able to have an in person reception but the juror, Dr. Mary Ruth Smith spoke in a Facebook Live event about the show and presented awards.
I was surprised and thrilled to receive an award for Excellence in Craft/Technique for "Seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall".
Here is my piece, made of felted merino wool, with hand embroidery and silk embellishments.
