Hardly the best birthday present - I've just heard my entry for CQ@10 'Indigo Mine' has been rejected. While stressing that mainly dictated by the wall space available and not a reflection of the quality of the work, I was not comfortable having to work from someone elses image and that is probably reflected in this piece.
I hope for better success with my other indigo pieces.
UPDATE - there were only 23 selected from 61 entries so I don't feel so bad now to be part of the majority not accepted. I had just enough notice to fill in an entry form for Small Wall Hanging Category at Sandown quilt show in June so at least it will be seen somewhere!
