A Big Surprise

I've had some work accepted into the Platform Gallery Craft Open Exhibition in Clitheroe.The exhibition opened yesterday and runs until July 4th. Further details are on the Exhibitions page

My pieces are cut and stitched paper developing from work I exhibited at the Knitting and Stitching Shows last year.

The big surprise is that I've been awarded the Selectors' Prize for Innovation - totally unexpected, and for once I was practically speechless. There's a nice picture here on the Gallery's twitter page, and if that isn't enough there's a slightly fuzzy one here.

The prize comes with the opportunity to have a showcase in an exhibition at the gallery later this year, so (as they say) watch this space.
