Wow, I was so jazzed to learn that Songbird placed Third in the Art Pictorial category at the 2012 Dallas Quilt Celebration. The exhibit sponsored by the Dallas Quilt Guild took place on March 9-11th at Market Hall in Dallas. Last year, I did not submit any entries but somehow, I had the feeling that this year might be different and it was! So glad I decided to throw my hat in! You know what they say, "The only way to win is to try." I was so tickled to hear the news! The show was judged by Cindy Ericson, Marcia Kaylakie and Connie Silber, three very well known and distinguished judges. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the show. Family always comes first and it was quite a busy weekend! Sometimes, life is just that way! On Friday morning, a friend posted this photo on my Facebook wall. I am most grateful to her as it made my entire weekend that much more enjoyable. I have been waiting for the winners to be posted and have just learned that she, too won at Dallas though she never mentioned it, sly devil! And so, I would like to congratulate Andrea Brokenshire for placing Third in Master Art Category! Way to go, Girl!
