Fall Rhapsody is a good description for my mood yesterday and it's also the name of a jacket I sold during the recent Lowell Open Studios Event. Martha came to pick up it yesterday and she let me snap her picture.
She was on her way to work and was quite worried that she wasn't dressed appropriately to show it off. That didn't worry me. I may be prejudiced, but I think it looks great even with her jeans. (She's promised me she'll have her husband take another picture of her wearing it when she's all dolled up for a night out.)
I have to say that it is an enormous high for me when one of my jackets meets its new owner. This one fits Martha to a tee and brings out the red highlights in her hair. Everyone commented about that when she tried it on during open studios. So, even though I made it some time ago, it looks like it was made just for her. I guess it was, I just didn't know it at the time.
So I'm still grinning ear-to-ear today...a good feeling to carry over into my first fine crafts show this weekend. I hope you'll join me at the Merrimack Valley Artisans show in Chelmsford, Massachusetts either Saturday or Sunday. Maybe you'll find the jacket that was made for you.
