Good news and sneak peak


After some frustrations, my recalcitrant piece is finally coming along. I like how it has turned out. Here is a sneak peek.

On the good news front... usually my mail consists of junk and bills but today I was pleasantly surprised to find 2 very nice pieces. One was a wedding invitation to my hubby's niece's wedding next month (not a surprise) and the other was my "honorarium" check for my piece Through Rose Colored Glasses which will be featured as part of an article on landscape quilts in the July/August issue of Fons and Porters "Love of Quilting" magazine. This is pretty heady for a nobody in the art quilt world. This has been a good year for me so far. I hate drinking alone, but I think I will imbibe in a glass of wine.

You're not drinking alone Sherryl - we're all with you - red or white?

LOL, thanks Kay. I have white opened already.

Aw, Sherryl, that is such great news... I am a red wine fan, but here is another one 'with you'...
BTW this piece is not bad at all... if it were mine, and feeling like you do about it, maybe leave it... give it some incubation time?
Just a thought...

A "nobody" -- pshaw! You're on your way to playing with the big dogs!
