Summer Sales

Wow, it's the last day of August.  Can you believe it?  I hope you all had a good summer.  It's been a busy one for me, even without embroidering anything.  I was full time mom, housewife, gardener, and part time quilter.  That is all.  Thanks for bearing with me as I took July & August off from my fibre art.  I have loads and loads of new photo inspirations for upcoming pieces.

I was about to make a new page that would showcase, 'available works', but then this week saw three of my pieces being sold privately to 2 women while I was vacationing at my old stomping grounds.  I brought some of my art out to the lake with me to show my mom (she has no internet), and they all sold while I was out there!  Incredible!  So here are the ones that now have new homes.  First, On Floral Road.

On Floral Road, 7x9" framed 2012 - SOLD

I don't think I got a final photo of that piece!  I finished it just in time for our local Showcase of the Arts, and now it's gone.  I wasn't sure I was ready to part with this one, but when I saw the reaction of the person who bought it when she first laid eyes on it, I was MORE than happy to pass it over to her.  I'm very proud that my work made someone react so strongly.  ; )  What a feeling!  My prairie signature piece Canola Summer was sold as well.

Finally, Lakewood has been sold.  The woman who bought this took one look at it and said, "I want it."  lol  It's now hanging in her kitchen.

Lakewood, 4x6 framed 2012 - SOLD




THANK YOU!  Wow, wow, and wow.  I was not expecting to come home without bringing my art back with me.  School starts for my kids next week.  This is the first time in 13 years that I will have all of them in school from 9-3:30.  This next school year is very busy for me, but I'm excited to see how much I can get done with five 5 hr days per week (they still come home for lunch).  Maybe I can manage art AND a clean house?  lol  Wouldn't that be nice!?  First up will be 2 threadpainting commissions that have been waiting since before the summer.  Thank you to both of you for waiting.  Stay tuned!  I'll likely have lots of work in progress next week.
