I GOT JURIED IN !!!

Happy Friday, everyone... 

The quilting Goddesses have once again been kind to me... my small quilt, "Mystic Glacier" has been juried into the Road to California quilt show in January.  Oh I am so honored.  

"Mystic Glacier" is made from a vintage damask napkin, mounted on a piece of Radiance fabric, and then quilted a WHOLE LOT, following the pattern in the original linen as a guide.  I also found some vintage lace on eBay to edge it with... 

This is the second year I have had a piece in Road to California - and I was simply dumbstruck when I got the acceptance...  oh this is really fun!


 
Of course, now I must put on a hanging sleeve, a label, pack up to mail, fill out forms, etc.  But that is fine - so fun. 
 
 
Besides getting this ready for mailing, everyone at my house is trying to relax.  So far, Miss Bit seems to have mastered relaxation more than anyone else!  
I did score BIG this morning at Jo-Ann's - a very early morning run to see what the Saturday Doorbuster's were - and they had ArtBins at the fabulous "Buy ONE, get TWO free" - so I got SIX bins - the better to store unfinished projects in!!!! 
 
I truly hope you have all had a fabulous holiday, and have found both some laughter and some rest.  One more day - let's see how much quilting I can get done!!!! 
 
Happy Happy Quilting!
 
Kate
