How now black cowl

Well, two craft shows have come and gone. The first sale, I did better than I expected. So that's a good thing. It was at my law firm so it's a private sale and not much traffic. This year, the traffic was positively dismal so I am lucky to have the sales I did. The next sale was at a huge church here in town with quite a bit more traffic. My sales were pathetic and almost non-existent. But that is ok because I considered this one to be a learning process since this was my first time out in the big, wide world. Lot of people interested in my stuff and complimentary about it, but no one buying. Unfortunately, I spent half of my profits on the shawl pin shown below. It's just a piece of wood but it looks like bone. I guess I am drawn by it's simplicity and how primitive it is. I made the cowl that is showcasing it and hope to have it soon on my etsy site.
