Sometimes I Need To Pay Attention

June 28, 2011 2 comments

Wow, I am writing two posts in one day. It happens.  Why am I writing again…?

Sometimes I need to pay attention. It’s is really true. I tend to get busy and I forget small things. Scatter-brained, forgetful and all that. This time I forgot something pretty damned big. It’s something exciting, great, wonderful.

So, over a year ago I submitted one of my hat patterns to a Knitting 2012 Calendar. I didn’t hear back about the calendar, or my submission. I simply forgot about it. It did not enter my mind once. I tend to get a lot of email and occasionally emails get lost in the shuffle. Last week, I saw an email, in my inbox, about the Knitting Calendar. I get a lot of emails and I have submitted to calendars before. So, I ended up skimming the email and deleting it. Again, it did not jog my memory, that I submitted to it.

About 2:30pm the mailman knocked on my door and left a package for me. I wasn’t expecting anything. I was baffled. Who would be sending me something? The return address is a publishing company. Hmmmm?

I opened it and there is my free copy of Knitting: 100+ Patterns Throughout the Year: 2012 Day-to-Day Calendar. I thought about it and thought, okay maybe I submitted something. I kind of remember…I went to my email and began digging through my trash bin to find the email I had previously deleted. I found it and actually read it word for word. Yes, one of my patterns was accepted and is published in this calendar. So, the calendar in the package is my free copy as a designer.


My Isabella Hat is published on January 18th, in the calendar.

I’m so excited and it’s great news. So, it all turned out fabulous.

Really, I need to pay attention, though. Remember things like where I submit patterns. I need to get organized. Just for the record, I do remember submitting the hat. I just did not know that my pattern was actually accepted.

That’s my happy news for the day. I am now off to do some house chores. Off the computer for the afternoon. Toodles!
