I am so excited to announce that my quilt, Doors Across Austin, won Best of Show! I am so excited! Before I got the official news this morning, I got an email last night from a friend. I just screamed, really it was beyond my control. I didn't even know they were selecting awards for this show. Mainly, I just needed to make the quilt. I am not alone in this experience, and I wanted to share a piece of my life with others. That's what was important. So why does the award make me shriek? I think it shouldn't be that important. But, I can't help myself, it does feel good. Good to have my work recognized and validated, especially when it is not bringing in much income. Well, I don't know, I thought I was pretty thrilled and validated to get it juried into the show. And now, here I am!
