Hello, neglected blog readers!
There is so very much happening right now and I have so very little interest in stopping to write about it. We have put our house on the market, and have done a ton of packing over the past couple of months (we are tchotchke people and have many of them—they are all now packed away and our house looks like grownups live there). Our house is being looked at right now, and I am at a very cold Panera while they do the showing. It is an exciting, nerve-racking time.
In my last post, I wrote about the Fiber Squared exhibit. One of my pieces, I Live in a Granny Square World, received an Honorable Mention! Woo-hoo!! Here’s a photo of the winners, taken by Missouri Fiber Artists member Jane Olson Glidden.
Clearly I did not get the subdued, earth tones memo.
And now we are going to travel even further back in my blogging history to September of 2015, when I wrote about the Mandalas for Marinke project. This month, the Mandalas for Marinke book was released, and the first exhibit, Healing Circles: Mandalas for Marinke, opened in Long Beach, CA. Again, Woo-hoo!!
I have the book and it is big and full of photos of crocheted mandalas and quotes from folks all over the world about dealing with depression. Kathryn at Crochet Concupiscence has done so much good (and, I am sure, hard) work for this project. Mandalas for Marinke is available at Amazon, and would make a lovely Christmas gift.
If you’d like to see photos from the Healing Circles: Mandalas for Marinke exhibit, check out the Threadwinners Instagram feed. I’ve been able to pick my mandala out in a couple of the photos, which is just super cool.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Until next time,
