I made some necklaces and broches to sell at the Artnight event, a couple of weeks ago. I've made them the same way as I've made ATCs and PCs lately. It's handpainted scrim that is needlefelted on to wool and then handstitched.
A few words about Artnight. I didn't have very high hopes for the presentation at City Hall and it was just as bad as I expected. All the textiles were down by the floor.
At the other place where I showed my work there wasn't enought light. I brought extra spotlights but still... Textiles really need good lightning. I left my things there until the next day. When I went to pick them up everyone commented on how different they looked in daylight.
I didn't sell any embroiderys but I sold two paintings. I was very excited about that! And some cards and other stuff. It was a very nice night though, and there was a lot of people that showed interest in my work, mostly women of course.
I'm finally done with the moving business and I hope to be back on track with my art and blogging in a few days. I'm really looking forward to catching up with what everyone else has been doing. Big thank you hugs to everyone who's been stopping by here during the last month. You have no idea how much your support means to me! Thank you!
