There is a show called Quilt National. Some say it is the cream of the crop of quilting in North America. I have been working on my entry for it like crazy. It is due Friday. I have had 2 years to get it done. I started on Monday. They accept 80 out of about 1,000 entries. They don't let you show it at all. Anywhere. So, I am writing this with a huge smile on my face. It is all true, and no I am not completely delusional. I fully realize I have no chance of getting in. But, and a big giant BUT here, when I do (and we are all going to pretend that someday I do), I want to be able to say that I have been diligently trying for the last 32 years to get in!
Go and check out the site, they show the winners for several years. It is a feast for the eyes for sure. I will tell you this, I was using a hammer and nails to prepare some of the embellishments for it. As soon as I get my rejection letter, I will post it. Until then, you can just wonder away as to what I was doing with those tools=)
On another topic, I mentioned before that I signed onto the national Board here in Canada called Canadian Quilters' Association. I started in May and can honestly tell you I am having the time of my life. One of my tasks is to help look after our brand new blog. It showcases great quilt teachers, fun tidbits and some breathtaking quilts. Today there is a fantastic way to download tutorials using a site I was just told about.
Go and check it out, and by all means, if you are so inclined, hit that 'follow' button.
Now fingers crossed I finish my entry in time!
