A while back I entered this piece in a competition
yesterday I got the letter telling me it didn't make the finals
I'm not totally surprised -- its just too "basic" a design -- it is an original design, but I'm sure other things that were entered were much more elaborate
never mind -- its a quality piece, and as soon as the letter arrived I went right to my Etsy store and listed it for sale (at a very reasonable price)
and speaking of Etsy, I am now a member of a team of beadweavers out there
after being an Etsy store owner for several years, I am finally figuring out how some of the finer points work -- its kind of exciting to open my email and find a note telling me someone has added me to a Treasury
the Beadweavers team runs a monthly challenge, and I'm looking forward to participating in some of those soon
"we're gonna monkey, monkey around"
heh -- I finished sewing him all together last night, and as much as I dislike the sock monkey toys, I like this little guy --- sooooo cute!
now I have a few days to get a little blue sweater made for him and I can take him to my grandson
this morning its cool and rainy -- no outdoor work today -- maybe I can get some more work done on things in the studio
