Another Happy Dance!

That doesn't even seem possible, that I am doing two crazy happy dances over the course of two days!   Yet, that is the reality.  

I opened up my email to find this lovely paragraph addressed to me:

I am pleased to inform you of the acceptance of your entries A Walk Through Time and My First Modern Quilt for exhibition in the 2013 National Juried Show (NJS) to be displayed at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre  from May 16– May 18, 2013.

Both my quilts got accepted into Canada's juried show!  I was so flippin' excited.  Especially because I had just hosted a full turkey dinner for ten people and was a little tuckered out to say the least.
Then after finishing cleaning to pop open my email and find that lovely letter, gave me my pep right back!

I have another art quilt on the design wall right now and am trying to figure out if I want to use the 3D flowers you see pinned on it.


I do love them on it!

I have also been playing with some fun little gems trying to figure out how to turn them into an embellishment... any ideas?

What wonderful news! You're extremely creative... I'd never considered those bread tags for an embellishment.

Congratulations!! That's terrific news. But the milk tags? Seriously too much work - but then again, you're the artist, not me!
