Private View.

I had the most amazing evening last night at WAC's  (Wandsworth Artists Co-operative) Private View in the Mine Gallery in Carlshalton. I met some amazing people, a blogging friend and l sold 2 small wall hangings and made loads of connections.  


The first person through the Gallery doors was my blogging friend Cath, (http://stitchclothcolour.blogspot.com), whom l have never actually met but lives in the Chalshalton area. She and her friend came, looking very smart and  beautiful and then Cath bought my wall hanging. I have to say though Cath, you need to change the photo on your blog..you look much prettier in real life! Haxxx
I have a few images but the light in the Gallery was poor as it was after dark. I will take more images on one of my duty days next week.
The image below is just as we arrived and discover l have a room to myself unti 5 mins before we have finished hanging..then l am told one of the big walls was being given to another artist! Well..that's life...after l had calmed Tony down, we sorted the walls out.
 See l do work when l am hanging  an exhibition!!!! Thanks Tony for taking these images.
 Oh dear...need to mend my cardigan!


 A very poor image but gives you the idea of my rather nice space. It really is a lovely gallery Space and the owner has big plans for it it's futire.
You see the small hanging over the church bench? Well that is the one Cath bought and l am making another one the same size, for a customer who owns a craft shop in the village. I will talk about her shop on tomorrow's blog...need to go to bed.xnightxx

Your work is amazing Lynda, and I'm so looking forward to collecting my wall hanging next Sunday and putting it on display. I'm also really pleased that you sold another one that same evening, wouldn't it be great if by next week there was nothing left for you to sell!!! Fingers crossed. xx
