I couldn’t sleep this morning because I was so excited for my trip. So I got up early and went for a walk. When I got home around 6 my son, Alex’s light was on and the window was open so I could not resist a little pre-Halloween boo. I scared him good. It was very funny. Great way to start my day and give him a little adrenaline rush to keep his mind fresh for the test he got up early to take.
Then I came inside and opened my email to find some very exciting news indeed. My quilt for the EZ Dresden challenge won a Judges Choice Award. I was ecstatic! Alex was not as happy. I guess it serves me right for giving him the scare. I had to impatiently wait for the rest of the house to wake up to share my good news. It was sooooo hard.
I have to borrow the quilt from my dear friend, Holly to send off to be photographed and displayed at Fall Market. Thankfully she understands that when I give her quilts this sometimes happens.
And the really cool thing is that I won books from two of my favorite quilters. One from Victoria, can barely wait for this one. But wait I will have to do as it’s not due out until Nov.
And the other from the very talented Jacquie. I don’t have to wait as long for this awesome book.
Could a morning get any better? I don’t think so. Now I’m off for a very fun rest of the week doing happy dances all the while.
