Looking Up

I'm feeling more cheerful about my work since the last post for several reasons.  One is shown below.  My daughter-in-law took the Athena's Puzzle quilt home when they visited last week, and here you see it in use. What could be better!



I finished the scarf.  The color combination in this outfit is not the best, but you get the idea.  This was fun, incredibly fast, and satisfied any knitting urge I may have had.


And finally, I learned that my joke quilt has been accepted by Road to California.  Entering this seemed like a long shot to me; I thought the quilt's uniqueness would be in its favor, but the quilting isn't up to the super level that seems to be expected everywhere.  So the email was a happy surprise.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!  I did lots of cooking yesterday, and am cleaning today, but not too strenuously.

I agree; it makes a huge difference when you feel your work is wanted and appreciated.

Your quilt looks like it's found a welcoming home. Good news about the Road to CA show. It's always encouraging to be recognized.

Great scarf too!

I am so happy for you that your elephant piece got accepted--I am going to Road in January and look forward to meeting it. The scarf is FABULOUS!

The pic of that young boy engulfed by your timeless quilt does indeed say it all! And congrats on your acceptance into Road....
