Beyond chuffed!




For years it was a dream of mine to have my work stocked at Craft Victoria, and I am beyond chuffed that a few pieces have been included in their beautiful new Christmas catalogue.  I have been having a little conversation with Evie Barrow about creativity and confidence (which began with her beautiful and generous post here).  Seeing my work in such a gorgeous catalogue makes me grateful that I persisted through innumerable periods of self doubt.  (And hopefully I will persist in the future.)
Happy Sunday.
Oh, by the way: photos 1 & 3 include my Sitting Person; photo 2 includes my little painting Let Your Feelings Show based on an advertisement in a 1980 Dolly magazine; while photo 4 includes my hand stitched pale lilac linen scarf.  Chuffed, and also liking a dangerous number of things surrounding around my work....not least Shuh Lee's necklace and the green OK stockings....I have done a lot of my Christmas shopping already.....possibly I need to buy some presents for myself.....

Congrats Sandra! You definitely deserve it and your art looks great among the other items in the photos. Also, I had never heard the word 'chuffed' before and had to look it up. But now that I have heard it, I like it and want to introduce it into my own vocabulary!

Thanks Amber!!! I had a little chuckle at your comment. A rather English word is "chuffed". It's actually nice that there are still some variations between our language as it is spoken across the continents!

You are a true inspiration gorgeous lady, and I'm so pleased for the recognition you've received and so well deserve. I always have you in the forefront of my mind as I slowly trickle out into the world with my own work. And yes, nothing wrong with some special Craft Vic treats to honour yourself!!

Thanks so much Helen! You are an inspiration to me as well, with your beautiful drawing exhibitions which you have managed to work on between your busy days. Your calendar looks beautiful too, congratulations!
