In this stack of potholders is 75 of the 90 potholders I’ll be selling one week from today on Plaid Friday. That’s right, not 100 potholders, like I said I was going to make, but 90. Why? Because as I told Mandy and Athena today at our Friday Business Lunch at the Round House, I’m breaking my own rule, because 90 is enough and I don’t feel like making 10 more and because I can. So 90 it is. I just have to sew up the last 15 Elephant potholders and I’ll be ready to go.
Jon and I are going away for Thanksgiving, leaving on Wednesday and coming home Friday Morning in time for me to post my potholders at 10AM. This means Monday and Tuesday I’ll be figuring out how to put up pictures of 90 potholders all for sale at one time on my blog. I think I’ll divide them into categories, you know, cats, hens, goddesses, flowered patchwork, Tree patchwork, Manly patchwork, elephants, affirmations etc. Maybe each will have its own blog post. I’m still figuring out how to organize it all.
Mostly it’s exciting. I see it as my first on-line exhibit. If it works I may do it more often, maybe even with other artists. I’m planning on getting home on Friday morning and sitting at my computer like a gallery owner opening her door and inviting the everyone in. I’m not sure what to expect, it will either work or it won’t. But I’m feeling pretty confident about it and I think it’s going to be fun. And I know that any mistakes I make this time, I’ll be able to fix next time.
So please join me on Plaid Friday, next Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, for my first online exhibit. My door opens at 10Am. My only regret is that we can’t chat over tea and cookies.
