After months and months of dedicating stitching, our car is packed and ready to roll to the first of three shows. As a sort of "good bye" ritual, I photographed a few items so I'll remember them. I nearly changed my mind about letting go of the kimono silk rag baskets and a few of the dolls. I worked so closely with them for such a long time they have become a part of me. Today my basketry teacher, Nadine Spier, sent a link to her website where my basket photo and credit now appear! I feel honored, to say the least. I know I can make more thanks to what I learned from Nadine.
Tomorrow, Saturday, I will be at Artisans Studio Show & Sale
held in the home of master quiltmaker, Doria Goocher. Her quilts will take your breath away. The first time I saw them, they were displayed with well-deserved blue ribbons.
Last words: I love to sew. I sew to sell, then sell what I sew, so I can sew more. See you at the show!
