Dee, welcome back to the big world of craft. Or art. Thing is, you are not to old, but if you are asking the question it suggests that you might want to work on your confidence a bit. All along this journey, I've had people tell me I was great or a flop, smart or foolish, finished or just hitting my stride.
The people in the game with the longest staying power have a certain conviction about thier abilities and they apply that to thier efforts. I like what Julia Cameron does in her book and audio tape The ARtist Way. She helps the artist identify and deal with self limiting beliefs.
A mentor of mine once proclaimed that he would do with old age and trechery what he used to do with youth and beauty. Works for me.
