Well Tuesday started out as any other day.. get up, feed the dogs, do some chores around the house.... I started by cleaning the rug I bought in Wisconsin... I was waiting for a few HOT days so I could wash it, block it and let it dry in the sun.... Wow did that do wonders! the colors are so amazing in this rug... I love it! My patio is pitched, which helps it drain and I can leave it right where it is til it's dry.
Then I did some more clean up around here, and fiddled around a bit more in Beatrice room... the fabric I ordered to cover two of her walls, is not getting here til Saturday. BOOO!!!!! Beatrice comes home Thursday... So it won't be totally finished in time for her... I ran to my studio to see if i had Anything that I could hang to cover the mural just for effect on Thursday... I found this green/white Jennifer Paganelli fabric that actually looks really nice! But I don't have enough to do all of two walls... So when I get the other fabric. You will see what I mean.. ;-)
The desk came fro her room, and chair and drapes, Wednesday the lamp... So I'm pretty much done...Facebook and saw that people were getting notifications for the quilts they entered into International quilt Festival in Houston. I checked my email, and no email. My stomach began to turn... then I got nervous, as more people were getting there emails. Where was mine!! Then. Finally. My emails came.
Both quilts I entered got in to HOUSTON!!! TWO! I'm so excited I almost fell over. I have tried for three years to get a quilt into Houston, and well, three times was a charm!
I would have been OK if I didn't get any in. Trying makes me a better quilter...and I like making better quilts! So to get one, then two accepted, was mind blowing....
Now that was pretty cool ... Definitely made my day... then....Hours later...
We, ( the same group as I was a part of last year for our group quilt, Kathy York, myself, Frances Holiday Alford, Michele Muska, Leslie Tucker Jenison, and Hoodie Crescent,) got word that, our group quilt, got in to Houston, too!
I'm overwhelmed and stunned, humbled... ( and really happy!)
What a day.
