And now, for my news! Last week I decided to enter my Wonderland quilt into our local county fair. Judging was last Monday, Labor Day, and the fair opened on Tuesday afternoon. I decided to not actually attend the fair and wait until Sunday afternoon when I picked my quilt up to see if I won a ribbon, and I DID!! My first blue ribbon!! You can read more about how Wonderland came to be here!

Wonderland won in the Quilts and Wall Hangings Original Design category!

My first blue ribbon!! Even if it was at the county fair! LOL

I looked a LOT like Cheshire Cat when I saw this! I think he was as happy as I was!! LOL

NEVER FORGET – our freedom depends on it!

On a more somber note, I’m sure all of us remember the tragic events of 9/11/2001. Please remember those who lost their lives, their families,  and those brave first responders who gave their all to save others on this day.
America – Never Forget!

    Good Morning Brenda! Congrats on your blue ribbon!! How exciting is that?!! I admire you for waiting until you picked up your piece to found out if it was a winner or not. Honestly, it looks so well done that it just had to be a winner. Your quilting, especially on the tree really makes it shine. ~smile~ Roseanne
