After reading some of the comments left by you wonderful Bloggers yesterday, I went back and re-read what I had posted. I think it may have sounded a little cynical. My intention was to express my feeling of when something bad happens you can (almost) always find something to lift you up. I was so excited about being in Quiltmania, that I fear I gave the wrong impression about my feelings toward AQS. I have been honored to have been accepted in many AQS shows and will certainly continue to enter them and I encourage all of you to do the same. It is one of the best ways we share our wonderful art with the world!
O.K., Spring in the boatyard (where I work) doesn’t leave much time for quilting. In fact, it is Tuesday and I haven’t made my California Gold stars yet. But, my friend Karen has and here they are. Don’t you love the radiance of that blue with the gold?
I did find a little time to whip up something for my grandson. He goes to a special school for children with autism and when I picked him up last week I noticed a piece hanging on the wall that held plastic coated letters. He loves his alphabet flash cards so I said “I can make that”. I bought a panel with the alphabet on it and cut it up into strips and sewed them to a background so he can place his letters in the correct slots. It is no prize winner, but he will love it!
Thanks for your great comments and encouragement yesterday!
