"I never in my wildest imaginings dreamed I would ever take the Judge's Award in an art show. Last year's show ( with two different judges) also had a fiber winner as the judge's pick. It was a beautiful tapestry. Fiber is finally coming to be recognized as fine art, and not "just" a craft. Hurrah for us! And the frosting on the cake is that my best friend won the People's Award for her mixed media entry."
Sue's big Best of Show is #363, which was previously shown in her Pine Needle Group Gallery Here it is again, in case you missed it!
Sue writes about this basket:
"This basket is a favorite of mine. I just love the combination of black and tan needles. It's so dramatic, almost formal. the shell on the lid perfecly matched, and added a touch of whimsy. It's rather like wearing a daisy in the buttonhole of a tux."
Sue's other winning baskets, #497, "Nature's Discards", which won 2nd place; and #498, "Double Hugs", which received 4th place, can be seen this month in her Pine Needle Group Gallery
