    The 2 dresses, that somehow, I forgot to post a message/ & EXCITING NEWS ABOUT ME

    Here is something, I'm going to pass on to all my friends, and NEW MEMBERS. 1st off, those 2 dresses are from Nancy Notions. Me and some lady's friend, have been makeing them, for the last 3 months for the Africa girls. NOW HERE IS THE NEWS- about ME. Me and my wife drove to Wellman, Iowa, March 19th. It was a monday night. I have a couple wonderful, Amish lady's, that invited me to there quilt meeting. So we went.. I ended up takeing 6 of my 10 quilts, I had for our quilt show, roughly,-1-2 weeks earlier. Anyhow, I had a lady come up to me, asking a few ????'s. I just wasnt sure of what she was saying, my nerves,(being new to the group.) Eventually she asked me for my name/-address/- phone ##.. That thursday of the same week, she called me. She said her and a lady friend of the Kalona musuem, were discussing about me and the quilts she saw I had made. What is going to happen--TO ME--is they want 15-20 of my QUILT TO BE PUT ON DISPLAY at the Kalona Museum. I have to get them there by the 24th/26 of July, to display them Aug 1st. Everyone, & New Members TAKE CARE-- Don-isewman

    What a thrill for you.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Congratulations. Obviously they liked what they saw.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Congrats, I dont know about everyone else but I would be thrilled to have any of my work displayed. You must be on cloud nine and feel that all the work you have put in to them is really paying off.

    One of the best stops I made traveling from NM to ILL was the Kalona Museum. It was amazing and the people there were so nice and friendly. Its on my list of places to return to. Congrats to you and having seen your quilts here on the board I know they have made a great choice in honoring you.
