I Got In to the National Juried Show....twice

All week I have been faithfully going to the mailbox to see if my letter came in from the Canadian Quilters' Association telling me if my quilts got into the NJS  (National Juried Show).  The deadline to find out was this Friday.   I went today and nothing.   I didn't know how I was going to wait two more days, but when I opened my email up this afternoon, I found this:


On behalf of the CQA/ACC Board of Directors, I am pleased to inform you of the acceptance of your entry “Rhythm 'n' Blues” for exhibition in the 2012 National Juried Show (NJS) to be displayed at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia.

and another email that said this:

On behalf of the CQA/ACC Board of Directors, I am pleased to inform you of the acceptance of your entry “A Ripple in Time” for exhibition in the 2012 National Juried Show (NJS) to be displayed at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia.

So, do you know how hard it is to type this post while jumping up and down?   Very very hard!   And I went to our guild meeting tonight and didn't tell anyone, cause you know when you do it in person that seems like bragging.   But this is telling my favourite peeps and that just seems good, ya know?

Here are my two darlings that are going to Halifax, Nova Scotia:



Now to figure out how to go to sleep=))
