Awards & Prizes

I just learned this morning that both pieces that I entered in the Dallas Handweavers Show won awards and cash prizes! How cool is that!

I looked at their website last night but the color on the posted photos is off, so I didn't even recognize my work. But Michael Cook, show coordinator, let me know this morning that I've won the awards and prizes. And check out the ribbons, woven by Michael.

The finished piece on the left is a shawl woven entirely of hand dyed, handspun silk hankies, with beaded fringe. The skein is 2-ply bombyx silk in a colorway I call Tropical. It's hard to tell from this photo, but the colors are turquoise, chartreuse and pale orange.

This was a nice way to start the day! I'll be back later with more stuff to share.
