Today I am taking a big leap. I have posted my first pattern for sale on Ravelry and have also listed it here under Patterns. Because it is a small bag, I am asking a small price. As stated on the pattern link, any proceeds from the bag sales will be going into my oil fund. My husband and I have been barely managing to make ends meet on one income, but I fear the oil costs this winter will be very tough to deal with.
Of course, I do not expect to sell enough of this pattern to pay for much heating oil this winter, but it will be a huge psychological boost to start selling patterns. I also plan to keep coming out with patterns and those may very well pay for a lot of oil. 🙂 I have become a great believer in the power of positive thinking and therefore I believe that if you expect to fail you will and conversely, if you expect and believe you can succeed you will.
So today is the first step. Dreams do not usually come beating on your door. You have to have the courage to step towards them.
