Pics of Val's work

This is something of a holding exercise. I'll be back in full blog mode tomorrow. Just wanted to say that a lot of people are asking if there will be a CDROM of photos of the Val exhibition. I have tried to arrange something but it poses a very difficult problem: if we pay someone to take photos we won't be able to let folk take their own pics at the exhibition. Otherwise we won't get our photography money back. Val would hate this restriction. There is also the problem of how we sell it etc. So I think it is best if I take photos of as much of the work as possible and put it on the exhibition pages of Workshop on the Web. Will add some pics of the exhibition as well. This is unrestricted so everyone can get at them. What do you all think?

Here is a quick pic to get you drooling. I have always loved Val's scrolls and when her family asked me to choose a piece of her work I selected this one. It is from our Stitch Dissolve Distort book.

Had to do a mini class yesterday afternoon and this morning, now back to printing out the captions for the exhibition and checking my article for the Quilting Arts special. It's all go.

Thanks for all the comments folks. Fran├žoise (note the accent, took me ages!) thanks for the mention in your blog about my demos at the FoQ. I'm blushing.

Artibliss (Susan). Your exhibition stuff looks great. What a lovely gallery. Those cats are so cute that I can feel another catblog coming on, so I'd better sign off.

Thanks for your comments on The Gallery and my work, Maggie. I will check out WOW for the pictures of Val's work.

I'm wondering what you use (or if you use) as a fixative for pieces you've highlighted with gilding wax. Seems like it stays a bit smeary and I'd like to make it more stable.

My hubby is giving me a subscription to WOW for my birthday later this month. I can't wait! Maybe I can talk him into getting it early.

I think you have the right idea about the photos Maggis. It sounds as though you will be acting in the spirit of what Val would have preferred to do. I shall look forward to seeing the exhibition on WOW.

The exhibition reviews are always one of my first stops on WOW and I think its extremely generous of you to offer to place pictures of Val's exhibition, that you have worked so hard on, there. It is so refreshing to see such sharing.

I look forward to seeing the photos of Val's work in Wow and what a lovely object you chose from her work. It must have been a very difficult task as all her work was wonderful.
