Still Doing Show Stuff

Have you missed me? I've missed you. Actually that's not quite true. I've been so busy I haven't had time to miss anything, except maybe sleeping. I've decided I've got quilt lag. This morning I couldn't remember my morning routine, and even forgot that coffee was an option. Folks, we're talking tired!!!

Yesterday I wanted to post a picture of Be Still. I entered three quilts in the show, "Psalm 46:10 Be Still," "Cascading Crystal Kaweah," and "Encompassing Tradition." All of the judge's comments were positive, but only Be Still snagged a ribbon. God is good. If I were to pick one of the three for recognition, this is the one I would have chosen. It's quite humbling to realize that my handquilting is decent enough to please more than one judge. wow. What an honor!

I've spent the past couple of days shipping back quilts from the show. I have one last package to ship, and it won't go out until Thursday. Today I spent the afternoon writing thank you letters to sponsors. Tomorrow I have more paperwork to do, and one of these days I need to take the remainder of the PVC pipes and sheets out of the van. The garage is already full, but part of it is seats from the van. yep. One of these days I'll get my garage back, and my van back, but not today.

And one of these days I'll give you an interesting post, but not today.

I got a comment from Mason's Puppy Raisers, asking about the pattern for "We Have Seen His Star, Wise Men Still Seek Him." I actually have a copy of the pattern from QNM, but I have no way to contact you. If you could email me (my email is on my profile) and send me contact information, I'd be happy to send the pattern along to you. My feeling of that quilt is that the more of them in existence, the better. It's a reminder that Christmas is about a lot more than just Santa Claus and snowmen.

And on that, I'm going to hit the hay. Perhaps tomorrow I'll have something more to post, but not now. Sleep well!!

Hi Suzanne,

I have been trying to imagine you RESTING. It is certainly well-deserved. Excellent show :-).
