The Needle Nellies of Georgeotown, version of Party in the Garden, is a blue ribbon winner again and again! I received an email from Susan, one of the Needle Nellies. Here is what she said,
"Your lovely Party in the Garden, our opportunity quilt, has won a first place for "Pieced and Appliqued Quilt" at the Foothill Quilters' Guild Show (Auburn, CA) and a first place for "Group Quilt" at the El Dorado County Fair (Placerville, CA)!"
I was so thrilled to read this. You would have thought we had our own personal fireworks show right in my office!
I told you in a couple of posts ago, that I had a very big date coming up. Well, it is time to share the news with all of you. I've been asked to be the featured artist at the Needle Nellies quilt show in Georgetown, CA on September 15th! I will be sharing the spotlight with Robert Callaham. I've admired Robert's quilts and designs for years. I can't believe that my quilts and I will be in such esteemed company!

I'm trying to get a few more projects finished for a BIG reveal at the Georgetown quilt show in September. I'm making my lists and checking it twice to figure out how I can finish as many things as I think I can in a short period of time. September will be here in two shakes of a lambs tail and I have to get cracking!
When I started down the quilt pattern design road three years ago, I had absolutely no idea where this would take me. My original thought was that it would monetarily supplement my retirement.....I was wrong. I was not planning on the intangibles.....the feeling of making a difference. The tremendous satisfaction that comes when someone makes one of my patterns. The thoughtful and heartfelt emails and comments, the pictures you send me, the friendships, and the hugs at the shop and in classes. Thank you all for inspiring ME!
