Life is good for the Quilting Professor.............
First off, it's Commencement Season in the world of Universities. As an administrator, I have to go to ALL the Commencement events. This weekend I saw more than 2000 students walk across the stage and get degrees. In one morning I shook hands with about 900 of them, and I smiled and said "congratulations" until my cheek muscles hurt !!! But it is all good, every foot-aching part of it !!!
Secondly, my quilt title "Annabelle's Wedding Feast" came home with a ribbon AND a prize check !
Here's a photo of the ribbon on my kitchen table:
Quiltfest Lancaster, a Mancuso show, had a "throwback" theme... and allowed quilts to be entered that were past the usual 3-year time limit. Annabelle has won several ribbons before, but she was aging out of competition. I was so thrilled to send her out again -
and, speaking of "throwback" - what could be more in the spirit of throwback than a quilt made from a piece of linen that is probably 80 or more years old!!!
Here's a photo of Annabelle herself (sorry if you are tired of seeing her, don't tell her or she will get her feelings hurt)
There is a THIRD reason the Quilting Prof is real happy, but this post grows long now, so I will save that for another post - -
til then, quilt on !
