It happens every time. I should expect it by now. Although I'm always (I repeat, always) ecstatic when I sell a rug, I do get a little bit of separation anxiety when I part with it.
This last rug was designed by Deanne Fitzpatrick just for me. I had a spot in my office where it was destined to hang. I intended to list it for sale but I figured it would live in my office long enough to enjoy it or get tired of it before it sold.
But alas it appears this rug was not meant for me. The large blank wall will remain empty for now.
And now I'm faced with the next inevitable dilemma ........ what next?? I can't decide what the next project will be. I'm in a hooking mood with a package of new sharpies but an empty mind. Sigh.....
However I did manage to distract myself enough tonight at a surprise 40th birthday party for a friends husband. Lots of laughs and good food. And it was Open Mike night at the Pub so we had some nice background music too.
The week is winding down but the weather is winding up. Tomorrow night is our towns Relay for Life event and it looks like a post tropical storm will be passing through. If the forecast is correct, the tents might be floating away by morning. It's such a shame because so many people put in so much effort for this. Fingers crossed that the rain holds off.
Finally, thank you all for the lovely comments on my rug. I appreciate every one of you who read and/ or comment here. You always lift my spirits :)
