    Hello all, sometimes I feel like dreams are always going to be just that. I am getting my feet wet with designing quilts, and sometimes I feel that dreams are always going to be just out of reach. I am a sahm of 4, and my husband has his own business. we have been trying to relocate his business. we found a place, and it should save us about $17,000 a year in rent for the business. So we should not have to be so poor anymore. The end of July he fell at this new location and broke some ribs, so that was a major setback. We try so hard, and it feels like good things always happen to other people.
    A little while ago I entered into a quilting contest, and I felt so positive, but, I did not make it. It was such a big dream and I thought maybe it was going to become a reality.
    I would love a laptop for my dreams with quilting. And I entered a contest to win one. But I have this feeling like it is just a dream and I will not win it. If you want to vote for me, here is the link, the prize is a laptop and desktop computer which I could really use both. (they value at $1900.00). My picture is labeled fishy in their survey.

    Is this just another dream or do you think this could become a reality?

    I appreciate all the support! I really do appreciate it! Sometimes trying to figure things out is tough. My husband and I always feel that nothing good that we want comes true, and what is frustrating is that we do not hurt anybody, we do not do anything wrong, you know?? we keep to ourselves, respect people, take care of our family.
    You guys made me feel good by all your wishes, it made my heart smile. There are only a few more days of this contest. (then I am not sure what the next step is there, but I will keep you updated.)
    Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart!!!
