Answered Prayers!

June 28, 2011

I'm learning that patience is key.  I have to say that I've never been a very patient person.  I've never really had to wait for much, and at times I think I equate patience with boredom as I'd rather be overloaded with work than sit idle.  I've digressed a bit, but I hope you get where I'm coming from.

This past weekend was a BIG weekend for Squirmy Worm Studio.  Friday was the one year anniversary of when I lost my job.  It seems weird to equate an anniversary with unemployment, as its not oh so joyful, but it is what it is.  I really can't believe its been a year.  Sure I've enjoyed hours of Hoda and Kathie Lee (that one's for you Sherri!) and of course my afternoon indulgence of Let's Make A Deal (they give out some awesome prizes!), but I've really spent the majority of my time building my business.  Friday afternoon as I was driving home from the local quilt shop I received an awesome email...a wholesale order for two of my patterns (Diaper Wristlet and Thread Catcher).  Yep, that's right, my patterns are now for sale at Tall Mouse Crafts & Fabric!  :)  Definitely an answered prayer, AND exactly a year from when I was let go!  God has a great plan for my life, and I'm more than happy to be on this ride!

  5. Congratulations! I can totally relate to your patience and unemployment dilemmas. I too was unemployed for a year and wondered why my prayers weren't being answered. Finally a decent opportunity came along and I have been on a new journey. And it's been a truly interesting journey. Not always the best, but very interesting. I often think back and thank God for not answering my prayers when I wanted them answered. Again congratulations and continued success to you.

  6. Oh Candace I am so very happy for you! It is wonderful news that your patterns are being picked up by Tall Mouse. God works in wonderful ways. I so enjoyed meeting you on the last day of the Southern California Quilter's Run at Fresh Picked Fabrics/Cranberry Quiltworks. :)
