That’s what the tree in Block 6 reminds me of…
Went by the quilt shop today their rates are very reasonable… the long arm lady says she’ll work it in between the big jobs and that she should have it ready soon. I feel good about leaving it with her, I was getting seriously stressed out over doing it myself. One day I’ll get brave, but until then I’ll leave it to the professionals.
And a sign that I was truly meant to be there today, Brenda who taught the OTR class was working and she just happened to have her freshly quilted (by the same lady who will do my baby quilt) OTR. Just let me say, OMFG. The quilting was out of this world. I looked at Kathy (long arm lady) and told her she’ll be doing mine this fall and I wanted it exactly like Brenda’s. The more you look at the quilting on this the more you see. It’s entirely custom and exactly what quilting should be. It highlights the beauty of the piecing and adds it’s own beauty. When I have mine done you’ll be buried under an avalanche of photos. (Cheryl you should come to Houston and visit me & that quilt. The piecing is fit for a beginner. Come, come to the dark side. 😉
And Winston’s awards; he earned two. The bigger deal IMHO was the Merit Award in Math. Each teacher can choose up to 3 students for the year to receive the award. They didn’t hand these out in alphabetical order, Winston was her first choice. Win also made the 3.5 (or higher) GPA Honor Roll. He missed the all A’s Roll by not much when you come down to it, and I think he walked out of there wanting the A Honor Roll, hopefully that’ll light a fire under him for next year. Not that a 3.5 GPA is anything to bitch about. lol
