Organically Grown

I arrived back from my Qld. holiday yesterday and after reading dozens of e.mails and phone messages and a pile of snail mail, I turned my attention to finding out who had won the Quilters' Guild of NSW annual challenge, as I wasn't able to make it to the AGM. I had an entry in and so had a couple of my students.

I haven't heard anything official yet, but the guild's blog tells me I took first prize! Great! Wow! How good is that?

Do you know that flat feeling of arriving home from holiday after having a great time, reality hits hard and you know that you really should do something useful, but can't get motivated. This was the lift I needed while I decided whether or not to unpack my suitcase and tackle the mountain of washing.

I'm looking forward to seeing the other quilts in the challenge and congratulations Josh for your judges commendation with "Shake your Tail Feathers", you are off to a flying start.
