    i did it!!!!

    I am so excited!!!! I did it I finally sold a quilt!!!!!!! It was only a small table topper wall hanging but i still sold one. I am just over the moon about it. My day couldn't have gotten any better. Especially since I have two kids with pink eye. I told hubby and his reaction was bland. He was like well that's good. So I called my mom and she was supper excited for me. She knows what it is like to sell something she has made. I was sooooo excited that I ran out to ship it right away. I know that many on here have sold their work so you guys all know how excited I am. Thanks for letting me share. I am about ready to jump out of my skin I am soooo happy.
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    I like to make lists. I also like to leave them laying on my sewing table and then guess what's on the list while at the fabric store. Fun game.

    It's a little like t he commercial (Progresso Soup I think)
    "I did it - I got back into my skinny jeans" - he doesn't react at all,
    so she says "is there a girl I can talk to?"

    I so get what you mean. My husband would react the same way except he's say, How much? - Then he'd say - that's nice. I'm so with ya girl - I'm actually typing too fast, I'm so happy for you! It does feel good doesn't it. Awesome! Congrats!

    Congrats!!! Your post reminds me of the Progresso commercial where the woman is excited that her pants fit and the male Progresso guy is underwhelmed so she asks if there is a woman she can speak to

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    A couple of years ago, I had a booth where I sold my hand made items, purses, totes, wallets, table runners, etc. and quilts. I did very well, but I only sold 1 quilt. I loved doing it, but I have to tell you, selling that quilt was the hardest thing I have ever done. I wanted to sell it, but when the time came to hand it over, I almost cried. I sold it , and the lady payed me a very good price, but I felt like I had just abandoned a good friend. I will never do that again. I have 4 children, 10 grandchildren, and 1 great. They all have quilts, and I continue to give them to family and friends, that does not bother me at all. Guess Im just weird!!
