Oh Happy Day!

I just found out that my quilt "Grotto" won Best Machine Workmanship in the Innovative category at PNQE! This is extra exciting for me because a) since the birth of my third child it's the only somewhat large quilt I've finished and b) I'm going to PNQE this weekend, and it's the first national level quilt show I've gone to in four years. Please cross your fingers and toes for me! I've never made it to a "big" show where I've won a ribbon before.

I wish I had some fabulous photo to post, but not much quilting etc. has gotten done around here since the postcards. School started, it rained a lot, a child was sick for 4 days - you get the picture. Some things around here are a little more organized, but none having to do with fiber art. Hopefully once pre-school is in full swing I'll get more quilting done.

Many thanks to everyone for all of your nice comments about the postcards! They were fun to make, and I'm happy to contribute to a worthy cause like FFAC.
