There were so many things going on in February for me that it took me several days to absorb them all in. By the time I came back to present reality, the month was gone.
It started with QuiltCon....
I enjoyed QuiltCon Together 2021 so much, more than I thought because of the online thing. I really liked being able to go to the show anytime I wanted to even at odd hours. When my friend and I went to the QuiltCon in Nashville a few years ago, I collapsed in bed by the end of the day. My legs were so tired from walking, trying to see as many of the quilts and vendors as possible. Then we had to go out to eat; more walking hence more sore legs. This time was different, I went in the show everyday. I got to look and admire all the quilts as often as I liked. The vendor hall had different feeling though; I liked it better to be able to touch and feel the fabric and all the gadgets. It's more fun to see fun tools in person, I think.
Then came another show; The Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival. I had 3 quilts in this show. When I was watching the Award Ceremony, I got the biggest surprise in my quilting life. One of my quilts got the second prize in the Mid-Century Modern category. I was blown away and didn't expect that at all. This quilt is a house warming gift for my dear friend's new home. Here's the picture of the quilt.
There is more good news regarding publications in two magazines that I'm not able to share yet until things are settled and confirmed.
Imagine that all of these things happened in the same short month of February! I'm overflowed with joy and gratefulness.
Now it's time decide whether to pull out some fabric for a new project or look at the to-do list. !?!
Well, that's another post. See you next time.....
Have a great week!!
