Me and my Granddaughters and the Exhibition

Thank goodness the weekend is over.
I have just spent 4 days working hard at the Embroiderers Guild exhibition and I can't wait to get back into creating and blogging with my friends again.
The exhibition was very successful both in the quality and quantity of work and also the attendance by patrons.
I sold 4 items in the exhibition itself--only small things but it is very rewarding when you realise that someone likes your work enough to want to buy it.
One of the things that I did sell was the magpie bag that I had posted recently.

I have included a photo of me and my granddaughters taken on our recent visit to Tasmania.
I have converted it to an old photo colour because all the girls were wearing red and it really dominated the photo and I wanted you all to see them without getting distracted by the colour.
I rather like how it looks now.
In the front is Charlotte - in the middle row is Alexandra -Ebony and Matilda and then there is little ol' me up the back--do I look proud or what?
Now I must clean up the mess in my sewing room so that I can get creating again.

Ebony looks like she is bursting with excitement sitting in the middle there.:)
Well done on your sales, only little things maybe but at least people appreciate what you do enough to pay for it which is a good thing.
