Several weeks ago, Debra Price from Artisun, asked if I sell my work. She was interested in the encrusted pieces I was working on a while back and wanted an example to show her art classes.
As I've mentioned before, selling seems like a lot of trouble, and although I occasionally think about opening an Etsy shop, the work involved would be time consuming and would require a great deal of effort, and I'm not good at that sort of thing.
Knowing that someone is interested in your work, however, is thrilling; it gives the finished product a worth beyond the pleasure of the making. So I sent Debra one of the encrusted pieces as a "thank you" for her interest and appreciation.
Yesterday, this lovely candlestick and beeswax candle arrived in the mail. You can imagine how thrilled I was to take this out and examine all the details! Picture a big smile all over my face.
Thanks so much, Debra, it is a real treasure and will be proudly displayed!
And now, for a few more details:

I've been adding to the embroidery on the seams of the first section I've been working on for Karen's class. She recommends double and triple seam embellishment, and I'm happy to oblige.
You can also see that I've been playing with fonts.
The garden received some rain last night, but the sun is out this morning. Cooler, too.
My two little art quilts for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (minus the one that was 1/2" over in size) are in the mail. One more thing checked off the ever-lengthening "to do" list.
