After a rough week, today I got some good news. I finally got a chance to go to the San Mateo County Fair, in which I entered five personal quilts, and one group quilt. Three of my quilts, Falling Leaves,
Frozen, and Irish Chain Twist,
received Honorable Mentions in their categories.
And Scraplicious Florabunda, my improv flowers from scraps, won 1st place in Wall Hangings.
Poor Fred, the Fugitive, was left out in the cold,
as was our Modern Group Quilt, Missing U.
There was a lot of competition, with some really pretty quilts. Definitely a fun show!
And now for the bad news. We found out last week that my active, vibrant father-in-law has pancreatic cancer, for which there is no cure. We're all in shock and trying to make the best of a bad situation. It's just a reminder of how we take life for granted. Take some time today to love those around you.
