I spent about five minutes being disappointed when I found out I wasn’t picked but I’ve been in a few of these contests already and didn’t really expect to get chosen based on my results from the other contests. But I enter contests anyway. I’m a glutton for punishment!
Who was it that said something about success being a series of failures that ended? I’m terrible at remembering clever sayings.
However, I got a really nice e mail from a person from Africa who wrote to me that she liked my little dress so much and was sad I didn’t get picked.
And that made me feel so good!
I drew lines with a water soluble pen and my ruler, then stitched over them with a narrow and wide zig zag stitch to make the lines, red margin and letters.
It took a long time but it was relaxing.
Then I made a little fabric flower brooch attached with snaps.
