|Big Green Diptych 64" W x 47" H|
I remember the good old days when you got your acceptance or rejection in the mail. If you got a skinny envelope, it was a thanks but no thanks. A fat envelope had a lovely letter congratulating you on your acceptance and a big packet of info for how to send your quilt, etc. And they would call you on the phone if you were a winner. Boy those phone calls were exciting!
Then they went to personal email notifications along with a lot of info to print out if you were accepted. We called it skinny emails vs fat emails and you got another email if you were a winner, also exciting.
But all that has changed. You go to the website on a certain day (today) and see if your name is on the list. If it is, you were juried in, if not, well try again next year. I was thrilled to be accepted again because it is a wonderful show with a lot of fabulous quilts, but I kind of miss those fat envelopes.
I'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday, as usual. Go see what some very talented people did this week and leave some comments.
