Today was another First. I was riding a train on the way to my day-job, when my eye caught something familiar in the background. Usually, before I get to the office and have my morning coffee, I am in a quite a hazy place... It took me several seconds to realize, that I was staring at one of my own creations - a TerriAnn bag, worn by a complete stranger on the train.
I could not believe my eyes at first. I have seen my friends or people I know wearing my bags; also have seen them on the shelves of my retailers, but never have I seen one worn by a stranger, met accidentally on the street or train.
I did not approach that stylish lady, nor was I able to muster up any kind of introduction at that moment. We got off at the same stop and walked to the opposite directions. For a few moments I gazed at the TerriAnn hanging across her back and felt very warm inside. This moment made my day, and I once again realized that the unfortunate break-down of my sewing machine is only a minor inconvenience in the face of all the good things happening to me.
Someone noticed, appreciated and showcased my work. Can things even get better than this?
