Well the show was this weekend and it was another fantastic show. All my friends won ribbons and am so proud of each and every one. My friend Debbie (Quilt Crazy Debbie) won two big awards. First she won the Chairman's Special Merit Award and then she won Viewer's Choice. So proud of her. Check her blog for her winning quilt. It's beautiful and was the result of our friendship groups challenge we had several years ago. Yes it's taken her this long to finish it but she is in to details and it took her a long time for the perfection. Another friend (Sara Kelly Art Quilts) won Best of Show for Art Quilts. Another friend, Diane won 1st place for her double wedding ring quilt, another friend Deolinda who has never won a ribbon in the show before won 3rd place, and there were more, too any more to name. Oh, and I also won Best Machine Quilting on a Domestic Machine with this quilt. (Award sponsored by Thimble Towne in Visalia)
Had dinner with 5 ladies while waiting to pick up the quilts--Sheila, Kathy, Mary Jane, Deolinda and Kay). Connected with Kay Pennington (who had 2 quilts in the show and won some ribbons too -but she doesn't have a blog YET (hint hint).
Working and almost done with next Whisper Challenge quilt - finished 2 labels tonight while watching Dancing with the Stars. Was going to buy fabric for the back of the scrap quilt but think I'm going to piece a bunch of fabrics together (more scraps - bigger scraps). My blue fabric box was getting full so picked a bunch from that box.
And a quick update on Guy - he's healing well. No problems so far. He's been licking the wound on his inside leg so the doctor said we need to put a cone on him. These are the new cones. He can roam free and thru the dog door without any problems. However, he HATED it and wouldn't move too much. He would go out front and just stare. He would shake when he heard the dog barking at the house of the dog who bit him. But the vets say he's healing well. He's not eating the greatest but he hadn't been running alot so he hasn't burned a lot of calories. He wanted to play ball yesterday so that's a good sign. He seems to be more like himself.
Thanks for looking.
