Just a quick post to say...I've been accepted into a contest!
A few years ago I finished a Teddy Bear Quilt (I first talked about it on this blog here). It was just a fun project that took me a full year to complete, part of a hope chest I'm building up for my future children.
Anyway, there's an annual Quilt & Stitch Art competition here in Dubai, and I thought, why not enter the Teddy Bear Quilt? And I'm in! The competition is Saturday, the 25th of May, so it's still a couple of weeks away.
But everyone has to drop off their pieces by this Wednesday, so I've been super busy: I took it out of storage, went at it with the lint brush, started making a sleeve to attach to the back so it can be displayed, labeled it...
I know there's very little chance of me winning - I'm up against some truly gorgeous quilts, whereas mine is just cute. But I'm so excited that they've chosen me to be included! It's such an honor, and it's going to be so neat seeing this little guy on display.
Wish me luck!
