I've put down the paint brush and the pencils. I've documented and put them in a big folio. All 44 textile designs! Whew. Tomorrow I will mail them out to my agent, and she will take them to the Surtex show in NYC in May. I discovered this time around that I like textile designing much more than I thought I did. The difference with these designs is that I didn't think so much about what anybody else would like. I just focused on what I wanted to say, and the kinds of designs I would like to find in stores. So, who knows whether that strategy will be effective or not, but it sure was more fun. And as I send my babies out into the world to make it on their own, I needed a little reminder that I am ok, and they are ok. Funny how comforting something so small can be.
