The suspense!

The giveaway is now closed for judging.
Thank you for all your comments. I have decided to copy and paste them all into a document and hand them over to the impartial judging panel..(two of my friends) and let them decide. I think thats very fair.
I'll post up the winner tomorrow evening so watch this space.

I have not been idle though.
I've been working on two orders for two gallery shops. Lazyhill Gallery in Abbotsbury Dorset and
The Found Gallery in Dunbar, East Lothian.
I feel so honoured to be associated with these two beautiful places.

I also sent my fishy piece to Ramster Textile exhibition. My mounting decision was made last week. I covered two narrow sided canvases with unbleached calico and stitched the pieces on. In teh end it was teh best decision as they needed to be light enough to send , and also narrow enough to frame if a buyer wanted to. 
Here they are ready for off. 20x20 inches..too big for Royal mail next day delivery so I had to spend a fortune and use Parcelforce. 
I hope its worth it.
I won't even know if they've been selected unless one of you dear readers visits the exhibition and tells me!

PS Have any other bloggers out there been invited to the preview of the 'Products' associated with the Pompeii exhibition at the British Museum? I have but I can't afford the train fare and I can't imagine how they think I'm 'press'! I'd die of embarrassment if anyone asked who I was.

If anyone asks, tell them you are the renowned and revered textile artist Jackie Cardie and give them a dirty look for not knowing!
The mounted fishy pieces look stunning - good luck with the exhibition and I wish loads of visitors for the two galleries with your brooches. If the weather warms up they'll be out in their droves.

Sweep in as though you own the place and ask people who they are - they'll be thrilled to be asked and will forget to ask you!

Unfortunately i can't get to Ramster this year, but if you're not selected, you was robbed! Your work is much more original than some i've seen there!

Your brooches always look extra special when you present them like that. I like the way you decided to mount the fishes and hope they get selected. Shouldn't worry about next day delivery - just took something 2 days to get to me by that method and I had to pay extra for the privilege!

Reading your blog makes me want to come round to your house and steal all your brooches! Don't worry, I won't!

Love the two wall pieces, beautiful

Jackie - have you tried using a courier service like this? Now we sell on the website I often use them - I was amazed how cheap it was and they pick up from you, too. Just for info, in case you need to do same thing again. Thanks again for the lovely brooches x

Jackie the mounted fishy pieces are lovely, they certainly should get selected! And I love the way you have presented your brooches, it really shows them off well
