Yippy, Money!!!

My cotton piece at Funky Fibre sold today; the purchaser is an American weaver! I'm so relieved to have a bit of income, as Ben and I were just this morning talking about paying off all the tradesmen associated with our recent deconstruction/reconstruction surrounding our heating system, and how we really don't have any money to fall back on!! My 81-year-old Dad promised not to die until we save enough to cover the airfare; our family is like that, don't worry, we always joke about life. I also love it when my work sells at my group's exhibition because it means a portion of the sale will go towards my group, especially since I don't go on the duty roster at exhibitions and demonstrations.

I know it's not nice to talk about money, but I mean, you know... Income!

It was also worth asking for my piece not to be hung or laid flat; I wasn't sure if I was out of bounds, but it was worth the shot because this one looked so terribly different flat/rectangular vs folded/twisted/scrunched and since I spent so much time working on the look and the hand when it's on a human body. Look what Joan McLauchlan did for me, (bottom pic.) Nice, yes?

  1. *** I'm in the money, I'm in the money *** Though truth to tell, I already spent several times that amount in paying the bills yesterday morning. Still, Ben is very pleased because I worked on that warp for so long with numerous interruptions and he liked the outcome, so all is well!
