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!
