Tired – disheartened…
It’s always a bummer to get a box of designs back from a yarn co – not one design taken. Especially when the design editor had emailed me with incredibly glowing comments about the designs two days after I sent them in… Oh, well – design by committee- what are you going to do?
As I’ve said before, whether my stuff is accepted or whether it’s passed over is NOT an indication of how good it is. It’s all a matter of how stuff fits into the design scheme.
Some of my best stuff lays here (lies here?) unwanted – unloved except by me. Some of my most mediocre (moi? mediocre?) gets snapped up in the first round – I won’t tell you which pieces those are. Go figure.
Sad as it makes me, it also steeles my resolve to independently publish and market my own stuff. I can’t be the ONLY one who likes my design sense – n’est ce pas?
Oh – my family has applied for this. Here’s the photo I sent in (that’s me standing under my scultpure this past summer) They’ll never take us. Not photogenic enough (me) and I fear the kids are too young…
Wish us luck!
