It's in!!


"Menina de Favela e Água" has been accepted into the Contemporary Quilt Exhibition Water, Water!

This was the statement I sent along:
… Vivid memories of Belem, Brazil as a teen; particularly the favelas. A little girl with a leaky water can on her head. Living in a palafita (stilt house)... over water but no drinking water.
We only had 50 words and that was to include techniques and materials!

The Exhibition is to be held at The Old Fire Station Gallery, Henley-on- Thames, Oxon. 14th – 19th Nov 2013.
Lady Sew and Sew will be holding workshops and talks in conjunction with the exhibition.

Mark it on your calendar. It will be worth going to see.

Congratulations, Sandy! Read your SAQA Yahoo post and had to drop by to see your lovely piece. Best wishes for a successful show!

Thanks for all the comments! This piece is very exciting for me because I suppose I lived with the memories for so long.

It was so fascinating to re-discover the slides and see how vividly accurate my memories were. I may do some more work from some of the other things I remember from that time.

I love the way you used the colors of Brazil in this piece. The little girl reminds me of my daughter, who was born in Brazil and adopted as an infant. Lovely work!
