Thanks for all the words of wisdom about the website and stuff. I think mainly I just need to be patient - something I'm not particularly good at. I always expect things to happen right away, which isn't all that realistic. I just need to think back on how hard it was to get my first patterns accepted for publication (and that it took a good six months from my first design to my first acceptance), and now I have more work than I can handle! I'm sure more diversity of patterns would also help, so I'm going to keep on truckin'. I really appreciate all your words of encouragement, though - it really helps!
Okay, time to go eat some turkey - my in-laws cooked one up for dinner tonight. Yum!
