Fiber Art Commission Anxiety




The commission piece is done, and I'm in the process of setting up an exchange to get it to it's rightful owner. I have discovered that this is the most excruciating time! I am fretting over whether they will like it or not! I was given a lot of free reign on the concept, etc. so now I just have to pray they like what I ended up doing with it. That's S-C-A-R-Y to me!

I love that I had so much freedom - versus other commissions I've heard about where every step has to be approved. However, it does add some stress in its own way.

I look forward to studio time today, even if I do spend a lot of it cleaning up and getting it ready for visitors this weekend! I also have a project I need to "get crackin" on that I've been procrastinating about.

It is a beautiful day here in Minnesota - chilly but very sunny so far. I'm looking forward to later this week when we are supposed to see a high of fifty degrees - fifty! Spring is most definitely on its way in, and I couldn't be more ready for it. Oh to have my windows open again for fresh air!


Hubby heads to New York tomorrow for work, lucky! One of these days I need to get there so I can see some museums. I've never been to NY before. I need to find out the best places for a fiber artist to go when in NY, so when I do go I make the most of it!

Now it's off to write a bit more, work on my bio and then get going on the studio cleaning!

Check with Peg LaSota about fiber spots in NYC. She knows a few.

Hey Stephanie,
What happened to our "followers" window? There's nobody in it!

It's still working on this end. Maybe blogger is having issues today?
