Just a short post. Tonight I attended the East Central Illinois Refuge Assistance Center fund raiser. My former boss, and the nicest person that I know, had asked if I would donate a quilt for their silent auction. His wife is the executive director, and the second nicest person I know. Circle of Life was initially started as a quilt for this silent auction, but has been detoured for a year while it goes to a few quilt shows. I donated "Bouquets for a New Day", which was a block of the month in 2008 through "The Quilt Show". It generated $450 for the center! Yea!
And then I got an email that Circle of Life was accepted in the National Quilt Association's quilt show for this June! It's not a juried show, they accept the first 400 entries. However, it is a big thrill for me. As NQA certifies judges, I know it will get some stern judging. Which is a good thing!
