Amazing! One of my pieces has been accepted by fibreEssence for their upcoming show at the Silk Purse Gallery (1570 Argyle Ave, West Vancouver, BC). April 17-29, http://silkpurse.ca/

The theme is Cherry Blossoms: a Textile Translation. totally appropriate for this time of year. The cherry tree across the street is blooming profusely right now.

I'm using the colours of cherry blossoms, abstracting them by strip-piecing and reconstructing them. I have a whole new appreciation for the colour pink and red-purple.

 I've added texture by quilting an expanding spiral, trying to focus on the pinks.
 I can't wait to see the whole show!
