Have you ever had a day that you're never going to forget?
September 30th was that kind of day for me!
Our third grandchild, Ethan, was born premature on September 30th but will soon be released from the hospital! We're looking forward to getting to know him better.
That evening was also my first board meeting as President of the Prairie Quilt Guild. I survived.
During the meeting, I received a phone call letting me know my quilt, "The Cotheals at Home" (Phebe) won 2nd place in the Bed Quilt - Machine Quilted category at the AQS Des Moines show! Here I am standing next to it at the show just this past weekend.
My "Selvage Star of Bethlehem" quilt didn't win a ribbon but there may be some fun news about it in the future!
I'll share some of the other winners from the show in my next blog post.
Until next time, Mayleen
