As many of you know, I am a TVaholic. It keeps me company during the many hours that I am sitting at my sewing machine. Tonight, I heard a quote that will stay with me forever. The show was Castle, a murder mystery show. "Rejection isn't failure. Failure is giving up. It's how you handle it that determines where you end up".
The best advice I was ever given was not to give up and keep trying. My book was rejected by the first publishing house to which it was submitted. I was grateful that the next one said yes. It has opened so many doors for me.
So on those bad days, when someone makes you feel like your quilts ( or ..... fill in the blank) are inferior, don't give up.
