God Bless America!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is truly a new day for our country. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, like I've received the greatest gift-a bright light on the horizon.
President Barack Obama!! Doesn't it have a ring to it? OH YES!!!!

I consider myself blessed. I have a great husband, 2 wonderful children, a very sweet DIL and a grandbaby on the way.
Plus, I'm going to start workshops with Leni Wiener;
Her work is out of this world and I can't wait to start.

Today's Election Day. After almost 2 years, it's finally over. Hopefully, tomorrow will be the first day of real change in Washington DC. Our son says his vote won't matter but he's so wrong. This is probably one of the most important elections of our lifetimes. The world is waiting and watching. Vote with your heart and conscience; I know I will.

Gee, I didn't realize it's been forever since I posted here. I never feel like writing but I probably should; otherwise it's all bottled up inside.

Let's see......what's happened since I last wrote? Well, Mike and I found out the Precious Twins(you remember them, don't you?)are going to make us grandparents in April!!!! Trust me, once that happens you'll get sick of seeing me.LOL

I went to a Ricky Tims Super Seminar last spring and it opened my eyes to so many possibilities. I'll probably always make traditional quilts for our beds but I'm very intrigued by art quilting and all it can represent. I finished and entered 2 quilts in my guild's show.

This first one's called Global Warming. I used a convergence for the center and the sun was my own design. I was going to enter it into the AQS online show but I didn't get permission from Ricky for the convergence part in time.

Remember this one? It's my Stone Portal quilt from the Esterita Austin class I took in 2007.

I was blessed enough to get a second place on the Stone Portal and a third on the Global Warming. There were some really awesome quilts in that show, let me tell you.

As for the rest of me, I'm still on Workers Comp and going for another hearing on the 10th. I've had both a physical and a psychological exam to see if I'm still injured and depressed. Heck, I got hurt in 2005, of course I'm depressed. DUH!!!!!!!

I'm still longarming, God is providing and I have a steady stream of quilts. It's down from last year big time but then so is the economy. It's rare to go out and not see "Going out of Business" signs on even big stores.

The main reason I'm writing, other than to let you know that I'm still kicking, is to try to get back into the Stashbusters ring and to make a commitment to Stashbusting in 2009!!! Judy, if you see this, I'm finally ready. Let's go for it!!
