Successful knitting interaction
at my Mothers Choir COncert last weekend I was knitting through the whole thing, but at intermission, I got up, spoke to people and walked around a bit
finally we were setti]ling in, and I complimented the sweater on the woman sitting in front of me
we discussed the Weather here in Maine and Down in Pa
then she asked what I was knitting
I pulled one of my Goddesses out of my Bag and handed it to her so she could see the finished product
she exclaimed How wonderful, a little Stuffed Goddess
I smiled and said "you don't know HOW wonderful yet, let me show you" and I pulled out the card I made to go with them (If I ever find a place to sell them in)
the lady read it, then turned to me with tears in her eyes
"WHat made you want to talk to ME?? how did you know I was in THIS much pain?"
so I pulled every finished one I had in my bag and piled them inher lap
she picked the one she liked and even insited on paying me for it (she gave me everything she had $5.50)

THAT is why I made them
tohelp other women

just a good story
hope it translated well

This goddess was made with

I have ben working at finding a market for my Little Goddesses, today I went into a book store that was recomended to me by a Shaman in town
I went in, and the people there all thought maybe the owner might like to see them, and could I leave one or two with them,
THEN
I sold 4 right then and there
I am gonna make a nice chain to display them on, and go back next week
its a way cool shop
good karma
