Both "The Old Summer Kitchen"  and "Tiara", are finished.  These pieces have been plaguing me for the past couple of months, but now both are done, and hanging in my basement studio.

"Tiara" is my first attempt at a circular hanging.  It's only 12" in diameter ( well, 12 1/4". but maybe no-one will notice).  Here is an angle shot to emphasize the beading,and a full view.

Both of these pieces will be entered in a gallery show in November, with my fibre art support group, "The Fibre Art Divas".

"The Old Summer Kitchen" has been in several of my blogs.  It has required a lot of patience and trouble shooting. Never the less, I'm very pleased with this.  It is a bit of a departure from my usual more abstract work, and the first larger, "made in response to a call for entry" piece that has been completed in almost three years.  It's pretty good, but I can't call it my very best work.  There are a few problem areas, that only I know about.  This presents a quandary. Price! Do I price it so high that no-one will buy it, or do I price it a more reasonable level, in consideration of the problems?

Here is a close-up of the leaves in the trees, and a full view.

I plan to link this with Nina-Marie Sayre's, "Off the Wall Fridays", and The Needle and Thread Network.

My advice, price work at your going rate. Only you see the flaws. A new owner will see only the beauty.
