  1. Congrats Valerie. I was just looking at a tiny tapestry you made for me and thought, “I wonder what Valerie is up to?”. Then I found you and am really pleased you have done so well. Eric

    • How nice to keep the connection. I am happy to continue tapestry…always new ideas to explore in a medium that continues to present challenges and fulfilment.

  2. Congratulations Valerie, Well deserved inclusion.
