Over the last weekend I had a stand at a Quilt show run by a girlfriend. This event was to raise money for Eastern Palliative Care in Melbourne.
I had 2 lovely days demonstrating felting and chatting away to the lovely interested public.
With lots of wool and my samples hung up I made a few sales and then towards the end of the day I sold my last 3 canvas and felt figures.
Do you ever have that mixed feeling of wanting to keep your work and sell it as well?
It is a strange sensation. Today I started on a fresh batch of figures and it occurred to me that it was just what I needed - a good excuse to clear the decks and start afresh.
It is imperative to be proud of one's work - but equally important not to get too attached.
More especially if you are to make your living by your art.
So on that contemplative note, I am off to bed,
Cheers until next time
