MY piece sold to Larry and Carol Denning of Texas for $250.00! Compared to previous years things are very slow this year across the board, with fewer sales for less money.
I wrote that on Saturday – then apparently forgot to post it!Â Perhaps I hit “preview” instead of “publish”.Â As I was looking at the auction pieces I decided that there was one I would like to have for my guest room. “Under the Oaks”. I’m working on a hand appliqued, hand quilted “Oak Leaf and Acorn” quilt for that room and it’s border is the same fabric as the binding on that one! Perfect! Why didn’t I see that before? It was at $150 and available.Â Then I got the idea that I could get two for the same price if I only waited a few hours, so I chose another in the same color range for that room, “Under the Sea”,Â and at the crack of 2:00 I sent my bid. But as luck would have it, in the meantime someone else snapped up “Oaks”. Oh, well.Â I can see how this auction thing could become addictive!!
Sunday afternoon was the opening reception for “Kansans Paint Kansas”.Â There was a nice turnout and some beautiful work.Â All three of my entries were accepted and I was thrilled to receive a President’s Award for “Grasslands”.
