Dear readers, I'm pleased to share that the above Shadow Box Oooo was subject to a fierce (and dirty) bidding war last night at the Textile Museum of Canada Shadow Box Auction. Although I am a peace-loving person, bidding wars are marvelously fun. The event was packed with triple the number of ticket sales from the previous auction. This year there were some gorgeous shadow boxes although the TMC website photos do not do justice to the artworks. Next year they need to hire a better photographer. In the original post I forgot to tell you all that the stitching was all done by hand. When one of the bidders asked about my machine-sewing technique and I told her it was all done by hand, she started bidding in earnest and won.
