we just had to keep our fingers crossed, that in spite of the cold, people would come. And they did!
We had a steady flow of visitors all afternoon, who said very encouraging things - and (big excitement) I even sold two pieces of work. I managed to stay calm, although really I wanted to jump up and down. Actually I probably should have done, it might have burnt off a few calories from the cakes. In case you wondered, I went for the jacket instead of the cardie - on the basis that I could wear the cardigan anytime, whereas this jacket has limited 'wearability'!
So a very big thank you to Gina, our
bossyboots bully mentor, for her advice, encouragement and organisation, and to Viv and Kev at Art Van Go (Art Suppliers to the Stars) for letting us host our Tea Party in the gallery, and to all of the lovely guests who came and stayed to drink tea, eat cake, and who said such nice things about our work.
As my Mum said this morning, my sister Linda would have loved it - and she'd have been equally as excited as me that I sold something. I so wish she could have been there - but then who's to say that she wasn't?
