Returning work with a bonus

UPS just stopped by with another long package returning home (just in time because one of the pieces will go off again in a week or so).

I pulled out my two quilts, Distant Views 2 and Be Still the Evening, and, along with the printed info cards that go with them was another one that said Juror's Choice Award. Now that was nice to see but which one did it belong to?

So on the phone I go to Gallery 510 Arts Guild in Illinois where the show had been. It was for Be Still the Evening...the director said the juror was really taken with the subtlety of the piece...oh, and she will be sending a check for $100 shortly.

Well, that just made my day!

And the $100 now covers four show entries that I have sent off today...(I don't know if I will ever made a profit!)

If not a profit, then a nice rhythm and flow in and out is a great thing! Congratulations!
