Wow! what a compliment

"Black Stumpwork"

from a pattern by Jane Nicolas from Australia.
Stumpwork is embroidery in 3D

to see some really fabulous work look up Jane Nicholas .

This week saw the Rotorua Embroidery Guilds Exhibition .

It was a great success, and on Saturday we had "District Day."
Where Guilds from the Bay of Plenty and Waikato
( the equivalent of counties for my northern followers)
they visited with us had a good lunch and generally socialised
and caught up with what is going on in the district.

I had three items on display,
but the most amazing thing was that I was approached to sell
my " Black Stumpwork" now this is sort of a first,

I have been asked to help and tutor other things
but never to sell my work,
is this going to be opening up a whole new world ...
No I don't think so. But hey!! what a compliment.
Oh and by the way sorry it is not for sale...

but then hang on a minute they say
" Everyone has their price "

Awesome feeling that someone wants to buy what you made. Well done, even if it is not for sale!
