I decided this morning to have a play with all the bits of my cloth to see where everything would look best placed. I also wanted to have a play with my latest mini cloth, try and get some ideas for finishing, edges etc. So this is how my table looks today, with fingers crossed for a cessation of sneezing.
Here I am still deciding where to place the patchwork section when it is complete, (which may be some time the way things are going) I absolutely love this piece of work, my favourite part being how well the embroidered cotton tape sits on the silk, the contrast.
This cloth is going to be the first one I try on etsy. It will be interesting to see if it sells there and if it does o.k. that is probably going to become my main outlet. Exhibitions are a good way of getting your name known but I am beginning to question the wisdom of having my work tied up in a venue for six weeks, gaining recognition and compliments, but without sales. Sometimes I think it's just a very expensive ego trip.
I am off to find a tissue!!
