For those of you that are facebook friends this is going to sound like bragging. It's not... well, it is, but it's not! Really! I have a lot of people over here in blogland that want nothing to do with facebook, so I've got to tell them all the fantastic news too, right? And it's not bragging - it's tooting. Yep, if I don't toot my I'm-so-freaking-proud horn who will?
Okay, back to cloud nine...
Over the past couple of days was a quilt show in Portland, OR... MQX West to be exact. Wow, just to be accepted and to hang at this show is an amazing accomplishment. BUT (there it is), to win a ribbon... honor! Hold on... it gets better... two ribbons! Both of my quilts took ribbons -- I am beside myself with joy. BUT (another one) hold on again... it gets even better than all that! I persuaded one of my customers (Cathy) to enter her quilt and she took a ribbon as well! OMG... three ribbons - two of my own and one on a customer's quilt -- the quilty angels are definitely looking down on me, and I do believe they might be singing!
Here's a peek at all of them (again, thank you to Teri Lucas for taking the photos and for sharing them)!!

here. Congratulations to all the winners, there are some amazing quilts and quilters on that list -- I am absolutely honored to be included! Also, make sure you take some time and visit the MQX website -- they have two shows East and West. I must send a shout-out to Teri Lucas, she graciously took and posted photos of my quilts (as well as Cathy's) as I couldn't be at the show and now I get to share them with you! Take some time and swing by her blog and check out her winning quilt, Tilde (photo to left) - gorgeous! I borrowed this picture from Teri (I don't think she'll mind)!
See, now you understand why I'm floating! Happy Day Quilties!
Oh, and I almost forgot! Right after MQX West Clouds in My Latte is getting overnighted to Lisa and hitching a plane ride to Houston! You'll be able to get up close and personal as it will be hanging in the Machine Quilting Unlimited booth at both Market and Festival! Make sure you swing by their booth and check out a really great magazine and take a peek at Clouds while you're there! Oh, and my other quilt, Wonderlust, will be hanging on the other side of the Brown Convention Center - on the show floor!
Okay, now.... Happy Day Quilties!!!
