Shawl blog post

I am so angry with myself.  I  have started taking pictures of the shawl I have planned to submit to the fiber show sponsored by the Atlanta weaving guild.  Today I checked the deadline.  July 1.  I had remembered July 31.  And for some really stupid reason I never put it on my calendar.

Usually I put in this kind of deadline on my calendar and I add a warning for two weeks before the deadline and then I put in a mail-by date on my calendar.  I didn’t do any of that.

Lesson learned.

I had started working on the photography yesterday.  This was the first halfway decent one I came up with but I didn’t like it.  I had then done some more re-arranging and photography and was getting to something I liked better.  Planned to go find paper today that was some kind of light gray.

Here is the direction I was moving toward, but with a change of background, of course……….

Oh, I'm sorry that happened to this project!! What a disappointment!

I hope you'll find another venue for the project....because it is a beauty!!

So I am visiting in Atlanta right now........and I judge it to be a 'winner'! Sorry you messed up. This is truly a beauty.

Life Looms Large, yes, I think there is another venue coming up this fall.
Thank you Delighted Hands. Actually a friend of mine emailed me to say that she believed the guild had not received many entries, they might be willing to "forget" about the deadline. But, as you will see in my next post, I am off and running on my next project....!

Oh, no! Sounds like something I'd do. That scarf really should have been in that show.
