I don't sell things

I went to a friends house today, she was having a joint open house with her jewellery, bags and notebooks, and another friend's handmade cards and gorgeous printed wrapping paper.
and I bought lots of things I didn't intend to.
and then my friend started talking to someone who'd come, who had just had their loft converted and was looking for a wall hanging or a quilt to hang in the stairwell.
so then the conversation went a bit like
"well you made a gorgeous wallhanging for your city and guilds - you could make one for L. "
"......" - me
"oh that would be great, what was it like"
"....." me
then I engaged my brain and said I'd send photos of what I'd done.


what have I done....


  1. That wallhanging is great. Good luck with your first commission, and congratulations!!

  5. This is gorgeous - is it felt? I love the colours, very exciting to have something commissioned! Well done! (BTW I was born in '72, so our paths may have crossed in Germany, albeit in a pram!)

  6. Hello! Thanks for stopping by to visit me today! I love your blog! And I really love this wall decoration of yours. Is that felted wool or silk? Super news you may have a commission! Give it a go, so how it feels, how it goes. Think of it as some fun, and that you may get paid for it--LOL! I look forward to coming back and hearing how the story continues. Happy weekend to you! :o)

  7. I'd say you've just made your first sale. Well done!

  8. :-) Good luck and congratulations. There is always the first time for everything

  9. thanks for all the support!
    for those who asked, the wallhanging is a mixture of nuno felt onto muslin, with more wool felted and couched on, layered with chiffon, cut back, quilted, appliqued and beaded - wish you hadn't asked huh!

  10. I am so impressed - what a beautiful piece of art. Lucky person!
