With three shows at which I am/was selling this spring, I wanted to create some new pieces. The problem was, once they were finished, I fell in love with them and then struggled with whether or not I wanted to put them up for sale, assuming there was even an interested buyer.
For now I have some of the new pieces hanging in my dining room so I can enjoy them for a while.
I thought about trying to make similar ones. But that seems like extra work . And there are other pieces I'd like to work on. Plus I don't even know if these new pieces will sell.
Then I made another piece, this one with no intention to sell, but intended just for us, from a photo we took on a recent vacation. This piece too I felt a fondness for. But the difference was this time my fondness was due to the memory it invoked. The other pieces, while I still very much like them, don't conjure memories.
So now I'm ready to let them go. They'll be up for sale this coming weekend. And if one or more sells, I think I'll be tickled pink! And I'm just curious - anyone else had this kind of experience?

It's taken years to discover the medium I enjoy the most. And how what I have learned before somehow fits into what I am doing now. Even when I travel my needles and threads are with me so I can continue to create while away.
