Two things have happened this week and I wanted to share them with you all, who have been such great encouragers to me!
First, I have been working on reproducing a piece of hardanger that my grandmother stitched 100 years ago. I have been hoping to enter it in the Nordic Needle contest next spring, but the rules require the designer to sign the initial photo entry. I decided to write them this week, explaining that I wished to enter the design crediting my Grandma, but if I happened to be selected for the final judging, it would be my reproduction (and stitching) going to Fargo. I hoped to hear in a week or two….they wrote back within a couple of hours and this is what they said…
This sounds amazing! Yes, we would definitely be fine with having the copy you produce from the piece. If it became a winning piece, we would attribute the design to your grandmother, but would want to make sure when you’re writing the biography that you include your role in the reproduction. What a fantastic project!
Please let us know if you have any other questions at all. We look forward to your entry!
I am so excited…and motivated!
My second happy dance is because this week I was invited to do an open house in August, highlighting my piano lessons, and as of this evening, I have acquired five new students. That’s 3/5 of my goal of 25 total,and it isn’t even August yet. Feeling very blessed in Rapid City!
