I’m so excited to share my awesome news… my quilt, Midnight Garden, won a blue ribbon at the county fair!
And to top it off, I just received notification that it’s also been accepted into the 2013 NW Quilting Expo in Portland next month!!!
Yep, that was me, doing the Snoopy happy dance – ALL NIGHT LONG. I’m sure it was unbearable for my husband and kids, except I baked a cake for myself in celebration. Chocolate with chocolate fudge frosting. They didn’t seem to mind THAT.
The best part was when I emailed Cindi the news. She called me immediately, whooping and screaming. I think she might have been more excited than I was! It’s always incredibly fun when you have a good friend who understands what something like this means to you, and celebrates with you.
Okay, I’ll quit bragging. For now.
Excited? Excited?!?!?! Over-the-top ecstatic was more like it. Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous and I knew it would go far! You’re piecing abilities are beyond amazing – you should teach classes on that – Practice Perfect Piecing Perfection with Peggi. Yeah. That’s it. You should also teach a color class. Your color choices are always so incredibly eye-catching. How lucky I am that we met and became fast friends. I will have my fingers, toes and eyes crossed for your entry into the NW Quilting Expo!
