We went to Grandma Cathy's Christmas party today.
Yes, I am aware that it is near the end of January, but we wanted to wait for Jim to come home.
I designed and sewed a craft bag for Grandma. Unfortunately, I left it to such last minute that I didn't have time to take any pictures. I think it turned out lovely and I hope she uses it a lot.
I also made princess capes for the three older cousins and an I Spy bag for Kasidy.
While at the party my sister-in-law, Lyndi (Hi Lyndi!), gave me an article that she had ripped out of a magazine about a fabric designer....just because she was thinking of me. *smile* The fabric designer interviewed was Anna Maria Horner. One of my all time favorite designers.
As I read the article my heart literally skipped a beat when I read that it took Anna Maria Horner SEVEN years before she landed a contract with a manufacturer. I couldn't believe it! Anna Maria Horner (yes, I usually say her WHOLE name when referring to her) is amazingly talented and highly successful. If manufacturers didn't recognize her potential right off then I feel like there is hope. Maybe manufactures just haven't realized my potential yet. I have to believe that I have it, or else what am I doing?
I hope it doesn't take seven years. But remember, I have given myself ten. So if it's seven then I'll just feel blessed I had three years to spare.
