I also made a couple of birthday cards, one is in the mail,
the other one was delivered in person.
In other news, yesterday I received an email congratulating me for contributing to a book called "1000 Quilt Inspirations" by Sandra Sider, available February 15, 2015.
The funny thing about that, is that I vaguely remember submitting something, but have absolutely no idea what it was. This notice of publication was the first indication I had that it was even received.
One of my mottos/motivators is the phrase, "You can't (fill in the blank), if you don't even try." As in, "You can't win a ribbon, if you never enter a quilt show." Or, "You'll never get published, if you never submit anything."
I really like it when I take my own advice, especially when it's good. The worst that could have happened was that they'd say no. And instead, it was the best. woohoo! Goals are good, and this one paid off. woohoo! :)
