A Winner.....

So...... I never win anything.  My friends encouraged me to enter one of my quilts in the Austin Quilt Show this year.  I have never entered any of my work before, so this is a first.  My quilt is titled 'Bountiful Harvest' and is a Baltimore Album style using block patterns from several sources.  Each block represents a part of my life or family member.  I expecially liked working on the center block, a Texas flower basket.  This basket represents the center of my life, Texas, where I was born.  I have lived in other countries, but my heart lives in Texas.  I don't expect to win anything, but it is exciting to share my quilt with the community.  But.......I woke up this morning to find that I have won a hand cranked ice cream maker on the Tasha Tudor blog, .  That's right.... now I can't say I never win anything.  Enjoy my quilt , even if you can't make it to the show.


How much time does it take to plan a wedding?  Well, we've been planning our daughter's wedding since last November and it will take place this November!  We do like the small details, so I guess this is what takes so long.  Making decisions on food, music, decor......and oh yeah, what I'm gonna wear!  Katherine is very decisive and knows what she doesn't want, so sometimes it takes a while to find what she wants.  It's been fun and we are almost ready to send out the invites and we're almost there!  Now if the weather will cooperate and lower itself under 100 degrees, we'll be happy.
