Walking on a Cloud

I am attending the AQS Paducah Quilt Show this week and was completely caught by surprise when I received an email the other night telling me that my quilt, Grandmother's Cabin, had won an award.  They didn't let on as to what my quilt had won, specifically, so I've been on pins and needles until tonight.  Sitting in the audience at this evening's awards ceremony was almost like attending the Oscars!  When the Home Machine Quilted Bed Quilts were finally announced, my heart began to race as they started with third place, then second place, then. . . .FIRST place. . .and my name was called.  It still seems surreal, as if it's all a dream.  I am so honored and grateful and overwhelmed, I still cannot believe my quilt won.

So here is a big thank you and hug to all of you who have sent out good vibes, kind and supportive words and ongoing encouragement over the last couple of years.  I appreciate all of you who take the time to read my blog, comment, and follow me on Instagram.  Your support and cheerful comments help make this day a memorable one.  This week is looking like it is going to be quite a thrill ride with all the events and things there are to do.  I will write all about it after I return home next week.

Until then, thank you all so much and Happy Quilting!
