I grew (most) of this. See I told you I wasn't wasting my time!

Rejection should get easier as we get older right? Or maybe you don't get used to it as a tapestry weaver as there are so few decent opportunities to exhibit.

I was very disappointed to be turned down for Art Tapestry 3 last week. I'd been working on my submission all Winter and it was a real blow. The platitudes in the rejection letter were particularly platitudinous (nothing to do with the quality of the work apparently!) and I felt all of a sudden so totally isolated in what is already a rather isolating craft.

Right now the vegetable garden seems like a worthwhile place to spend my time and energy but I guess I'll make it back into the henshed before long. As my ever practical and pragmatic friend Katy always says 'No one died...'! Hurt pride maybe but nothing worse than that.

out the kitchen window

Totally tapestry unrelated but this is what I saw from my kitchen window this evening. I haven't altered this photo at all!
