Chuffed, again

Last Friday was a great day. The weather was lovely, I gardened, got the washing dry on the clothes line, opened windows to air the house, and the birds were singing. Then I got an email to say that my entry into this year's Montana World of Wearable Arts had been accepted! A day for celebration indeed!
This entry is my fourth submission to WOW. I was successful in 2006 and 2007, unsuccessful in 2008, and now success again in 2009. It is not easy getting selected for this prestigious event, especially now that entries come from all around the world. It is certainly becoming a true international event of significance.
My entry this year is in the FOLD section. I am unable to show you this of course because of the rules, but here are my entries in 2006 and 2007. Both are being modelled my daughter-in-law Angela.

The Eye Catcher 2006

Spotty Dotty 2007

And on a totally different subject. I now receive a New Zealand blog called Over the Net and on the Table - more stuff about art than you can shake a stick at it claims. A recent entry was about the Swedish Bunny Project which uses the rabbit as a symbol of subversive activities. It showed the following images which at first glance look very threatening but look again and you will see that the dynamite sticks are carrots! I love it! How do people think of such things.....


  1. Congratulations!! I will look forward to seeing it at the show.

  2. Congratulations. I was not familar with the World of Wearable Art so I visited the website. WOW!! It is all incredible. Your previous entries are fantastic and I cannot wait to see your latest work.

  3. Congratulations Diana! A fantastic achievement. I enjoyed the clever names of your previous pieces and I'm sure this one will be wonderful too.
