    Came home with a blue ribbon!

    I've been MIA quite awhile from the forum but I've been busy with quilting stuff none the less. As busy as a homeschooling mom of three can be anyways.

    This weekend was my second quilt show to participate in with my first show quilt (not my first quilt but the first quilt I made for the purpose of showing). Last fall this quilt received an Honorable Mention at the first show it was shown in. This weekend I won first place in my category. Very excited! My husband compared my reaction to that of Sandra Bullock in Miss Congeniality when she's watching the video of past contestants being announced the winner. Fanning her face, fake crying and wimpering, "Thank you, thank you so much". For the record that was NOT my reaction.

    Agreed!! The quilt is as beautiful as they come, and you my dear are as PRETTY as Sandra B without professional make-up artists enhancing you!!

    Pretty Lady, you DESERVE that ribbon!! (and smack your husband on the shoulder for me...not hard...just enough to let him know that even *IF* that was your reaction, it was valid!! It would have been MY reaction!! )
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
