Published!

Well, actually I am going to be published. Last winter there was a call for submissions for a new Lark Book for the 500 series. It was 500 felt objects. I submitted 5 pieces along with over 1000 other pieces.  The final decision was suppose to be made by December. I heard nothing and so though that I had not been selected. Good enough, I thought.


Last week one of my collegues asked me if I had heard anything from the selection committee to which I could reply "no". She then told me that they selection committee has to take until February to decide and that letters were in the mail for those that had been selected. "Second chance!", I thought, but still didn't expect much. And Wednesday when I arrived home, there was a letter stating that I had had not one but TWO pieces selected to be in the book! There is no money involved but I do get a free book and I do get to say that I have been published!

The second image will have to wait. There seems to be some issue with blogger not wanting to upload it. Oh well. Maybe I'll make you wait until September!
