Trinity Valley Quilt Guild 2013 Show
I've just returned from the awards ceremony at the TVQG annual quilt show. Tuning Fork #12 won first place! And, to make my day complete, String Theory won second, Ruins #1 won third and ModLogs won an honorable mention. There were some beautiful quilts in the art category -- honestly, I wasn't the only entrant. I am totally overwhelmed by my awards. And, honestly, feeling a little guilty. I am currently taking a class on goal setting from Lisa Call, and during our first week we are examining our "be do have" list and our underlying core values. I have no trouble with the "do" list and the "have" list, but the "be" list has me stumped. What am I? The other day someone asked me what I do and my answer was, "I'm kind of an artist." Why did I say that? I have sold quilts, exhibited in galleries, been in national quilts shows, even won awards in national quilt shows and I still say that I am kind of an artist. Why do I feel like such a fraud when I say I am an artist?
