Bowie on Parade
Hello everyone. Long time no hear. I almost had a post ready last week when the computer screen went black. It was returned to me today and apparently there was no fault – it must have wanted the weekend off. Anyway I am not quite ready with the next post but wanted to share some news with you all, especially as I won’t see the Wednesday girls tomorrow because of the public holiday here.
So…. for those who don’t already know – my Bowie quilt took out two prizes including ‘Best Use of Colour’ at the Royal Queensland Show (known here as the EKKA) and My Top 40 also won a prize. As one of the major prizewinners we were treated to morning tea and lunch and received other goodies yesterday. Pretty much we were the ones who felt ‘royal’.
But wait there’s more – today I was asked if the Bowie quilt could be included in the Grand Parade – the first time a quilt has been included. I feel very proud about this and was thrilled to receive another invitation to see the parade in person. So if you’re at the EKKA tomorrow look for the quilt sharing the ring with the best of the best. And if you can’t get there – make sure you watch the news tomorrow night to see if it’s featured.
Until the next post (which will be soon I promise) happy quilting
