A good day



Today is a good day.  First, my friend Sue gave me a dozen guinea eggs.  They are beautiful and I can eat them.  Second, I'm going to eat leftover spring rolls for dinner that my girlfriend made me when she visited last week... they're good and I continue to be impressed that she could make food like this which seems difficult to me, the culinary-impaired one.  

And third, I got a call from Weaving Southwest today saying that they sold one of my pieces.  The piece was called This Time I Dance (it was the second one in the series)... a piece I wove when thinking about how important weaving was to me and was starting to find some determination toward dancing my way through life instead of slogging through it and wishing I could be doing something I loved every day.  It was bought by a dancer.   I hope she loves it and remembers to keep dancing.  First piece ever sold in a gallery...  I'm kinda thrilled.

  2. You should be thrilled! And it's amazing how a title could make the sale. She probably was drawn to it, but the title sent her to her checkbook! Excellent!

  3. Congratulations! And it is a beautiful tapestry. I'm sure it will make the new owner dance with joy every time she sees it. Doesn't it feel kind of like you made it just for her? That's why I insist on knowing where pieces go when they sell - I want to know who I made them for!

  4. I am so excited for you, Rebecca!I am not surprised, though, because your work is so dynamic it glows. I still remember what it felt like when my first tapestry sold, it's quite an amazing feeling.

    Bask in the gloriousness of your amazing self, you've worked hard for this moment & you deserve it. I know this is just the beginning for you!
