Good news on several quilty fronts :
1. My linen quilt just got juried into the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza !!! hooray. Now I must put on a hanging sleeve.... (somehow it seems like jinxing a quilt to sew on the hanging sleeve until it is accepted in a show to hang , so I wait, and then do it at the last minute - lol !)
2. I just got home from a four-day quilt retreat - got soooooo much done, ate too much, slept some, and for four wonderful days did not hear the names Hillary or Donald.............
3. I've been selected as a Board member of the Northern California Quilt Council. I am very excited. NCQC works to support and elevate quilters across Northern California, and to support local quilt guilds. I think this is going to be a lot of fun.
on the non-quilty side: we have COMPANY:
Even with the trauma she experienced, she is gentle and likes to be held. She is very tired now, and just wants to sleep, especially with a full little belly. She will likely perk up and play once she has slept and eaten her fill of both. And tomorrow another kitten, a friend of hers, will join her so she will have real company.
We will keep her a week, then she will be up for adoption. Oh she will make a super-wonderful pet for some family.
