...Ohhh!!! (an update)

For those of you that have been following the story about my Irish Clones Lace doily going on exhibit, I have an update for you.

For those of you that are new to my Journal, here's a crash update:  I received a phone call requesting I consider submitting my Irish Clones Lace Doily for exhibit at the Lacis Lace and Textile Museum.  I was just tickled for the invite, and submitted my piece.  My piece was well received and will be on exhibit from July 1 to July 31.


What an honor!  My piece is being shown with many of the big names of our time! ...Prudence Mapstone, Margaret Hubert, Bonnie Pierce, Jenny Dowde, and so many more!  Many, many thanks to Melanie Gill for making this a fantastic opportunity!!

So, now that everyone is up to speed, would you all like a little peek?  LOL

Sit back, click here, and enjoy the slide show; my piece is the very first image.  If you want more to "ohhh and ahhh" over, then click here.

I fully recommend checking out the exhibit brochure too!  24 pages worth of information!  Needs Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Very well done, Dee and call me a traditionalist but, in my non-biased opinion, I believe yours is best.  Going over the brochure and pics of traditional Irish lace, your doily and one shawl seem closest to the traditional look of Irish lace.  Mind you, I'm certainly no expert in this.  The other things, while probably following the technique of Irish lace, just seemed kind of "out there" for my taste.  Perhaps it was the color, number and size of motifs, or the medium used....I don't know, but but to me and my inexperienced opinion only, less is more.  Your doily seems to have a healthy balance of everything.  The larger motifs stand out like I think they should (yeah, and who am I?) and the smaller motifs aren't overshadowed.  And, in any art form, I don't like patterns that are too "busy".  I'm confused enough as it is!!!!

For whatever its worth....

I agree with Shiela... I liked yours best! I also liked the one that was a picture frame and the bird on what resembled a dream catcher.... You must be on cloud 9 being featured AND being the first pic seen!!! CONGRATS!
