About 5 months ago I was reading one of my favourite Magazines "Where Women Cook" and came across an add for a Quilt contest, exhibition and auction.
|My "Twenty Wonderful Words" Quilt for the contest|
It was put on by a nonprofit organization called Quilt Alliance. The Theme for 2013 was “TWENTY,” a broad theme that celebrates "twenty": the numeral, the concept, the quantity, the word.
When I saw it the thought of twenty wonderful words just popped into my head. I thought I should really do this.
Well of course time flies by and I hum and haw. Procrastinate. Then feel guilty because I always have these great plans to do all these wonderful things and then I don't do them.
But there was something about this that kept nagging at me.
Ten days left before the entry deadline I headed to the sewing room to
Three days straight I sewed and created. I loved it. Time went by so quickly. I wouldn't have even eaten if it wasn't for my sweet daughter Megan who looked after all what needed to be looked after:)
|Thanks Sweet Megan|
And so after four more days
I finished my
"Twenty Wonderful Words"
With Three days to spare I had by quilt packaged, posted and off in the mail.
I was so happy that I did it.
I really needed to do this right now. Just for me.
Yes very happy indeed.
