|Me with my goddaughter and her husband - garden wedding 2013|
I had a visit this week from my goddaughter and her husband. When they were married almost two years ago (yes, they are barefoot in the picture), I offered as my wedding present their choice of one of my art quilts. Their plans for visiting last summer fell through but not to worry; that just gave them more art to choose from when they finally arrived!
I probably would not have offered this if I hadn't known in advance that they liked my work. (The goddaughter's parents have several of my works in their collection and she informed me that she blog stalks!) In fact, they mentioned hoping someday to be able to afford to purchase a piece. Not to worry - you've just solved my gift giving dilemma!
Still, I work in so many different styles, themes and colors, and know so little about their own preferences that it made sense to let them pick and choose. I was very curious to see what would appeal to them. Over the course of their stay, they narrowed it down to three apparently, with "Reverberations" being their top choice. I couldn't be more pleased, in fact found myself hoping that perhaps it would be the one. It's a favorite of mine, but not so much so that I wouldn't be able to part with it. It's such a good feeling to know it will be enjoyed beyond my own walls, in the home of a couple so special to me.
