In the last two days, I have received two “no thank you” emails!!
One from the International Quilt Festival about my entry…..
….and the second from the Cherrywood Monarch challenge about this quilt…..
At first, I was REALLY bummed about neither one being accepted, especially the Monarch Challenge, and when I had time in my studio that day, I wasn’t super motivated to be there.
BUT, then I started thinking about how much fun I had making the quilts and about all of the new things that I tried with them….
…..and SLOWLY……ever so SLOWLY…….
I was able to let go of some of my sadness!!
This episode reminded me again of why I make quilts!!
Although I always desire for them to be accepted into a show, my quilts are made because I love the challenge and I love the creativity…..
….and I love sharing those things with my readers!!
Thanks for all of your encouragement……
This meme from Bonnie Hunter says it all…..
Here’s to more learning and hopefully a bit of winning too!!
