has it really been a week? blimey - i've packed quite a lot into that 7 days!
first up - festival of quilts...what a great laugh! i spent most of the time hanging around with the fat quarterly crew, handing out postcards and chatting and generally being silly...the above picture of hexagon and stars was nicked from katy because for some reason i didn't get one decent shot of it. i'm not sure if 'highly commended' counts as 'award winning' but that's what we got so mum and i were pretty chuffed. i got the judges comments back yesterday with the quilt and some lovely things were said. i was *really* happy with the way the quilt hang and felt very proud of it. it's a funny ol' thing putting work into exhibitions - it's a bit like putting a piece of yourself out there to be scrutinised and picked over - so it's a relief when it's well received (even though i heard one lady say 'it would have been nicer without the horrid purple'! hahahahaha!)
