Woohooooo..... doing a Happy dance



Very bravely and with a bit of a push from friends I entered my "Vintage Valentine" quilt in the Mt. Gravatt Show here in Brisbane so my daughter .... Heather and I went this afternoon to see how it went and what a lovely surprise to see I got a first in the quilt section so of course Heather insisted on taking a piccie with me next to the quilt and as you can see I tried hard not to be in the front, I received a great voucher of $50 to spend in a craft shop in Capalaba called "Pleasuresew" what a prize for a crafter, I don't think I will struggle to spend it thats for sure.
