Hello Friends, I hope you have been well. This is a quick post, but I want you to know that my Thread Journey quilt IS juried into the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival!
And it has been quite a journey from my first quilt I ever made to this point in my quilting journey! It was a rather impulsive thing I did when I entered the quilt, so I am taking it easy. There have been times I second guessed my decision, but like I tell Miss Baby, “What is done is done!” I will share with you in another post this week my journey…
On another note, we also entered Miss Baby’s ABC des Maisons sampler into the 55th Needlework Show at Woodlawn. Woodlawn is the home of Martha Washington’s granddaughter Nelly Custis Lewis. You can read a brief history of Woodland here. The Needlework Show is a fundraiser for Woodlawn. Miss Baby has entered her stitched pieces since she was 6. We missed last year’s because she didn’t finish her sampler in time. But, not this year. This year, we are prepared! The Needlework Show runs through the month of March. If you are in the Washington DC area, it’s definitely worth a visit. You get to see the most amazing handwork.
That’s all for now. I need to make a few more quilt blocks for a quilt come due before I pick up my precious cargo from school. It’s crazy, but by the end of this month, I think I would have made about 8 quilt tops… I lost count! BUT — check back later this week — I have MORE fabrics to give away. I have come to the conclusion my de-stashing effort is an ongoing one. Just when I thought I had sent out all the boxes to you all, I dragged out four more huge boxes of fabrics that I will need to sort through and give away! But giving is good…. right? :)
Hugs to you all! I shall catch up with you later.
