And so 6 months of work suddenly came to ahead today when Liberty opened her doors to anyone who wanted a piece of her!
I forgot to take any photos (apart from the one above) because my legs were shaking and I felt weaker than usual - so much so that my friend Viv (who incidentally did have her jewellery stocked by Liberty a while back) was going to do the pitch for me. It might have been better if she had. And what did I say...
me) I thought I didn't say much.
Viv) Tina - come up for some air.
The buyers were great, with the minutes ticking they said a few things that needed adjusting - some I had thought of and dismissed so kicked myself. I came away not really having a clue - Viv who had been at my side during it had her arms opened wide and shouted 'congratulations!' - was she at the same pitch as me?
The trouble is I didn't look at the positive things said - I thought it would be simple, not in a yes/no way but in a way that didn't leave me confused.
So, more working and more photos to send - which isn't much for someone who had a dream of being in Liberty's British Craft room at 14 which was 15 years ago - a few more months won't hurt.
And what did I sing? sorry show....

Despite the tears half of relief at the end there's not a part of me that regrets it - it's another teeny stitch of the Tobyboo tapestry and it was only for a second I thought that I needed to unpick it.
