Good news is welcome anytime!

I sent my quilt (Tortured Soul) to the Pacific West Quilt show and my friend Dianne Young surprised me with a picture from the show and it looks like I received an honorable mention and possibly the Mayors Award, I won't know until the quilt comes home! I have been under the weather lately and this brightened my day considerably. Good news always seems to brighten the day, thanks Dianne for taking the time to share it with me!



This quilt was done for the challenge, Beneath the Surface, by Dinner @eight artists. I had sketched this women in a class and wondered what was on her mind. I thought about how we often wear a face of "I am fine" but there are so many things we are dealing with beneath the surface. It's only when we care enough to take the time to look deeper that we can see those things. Within the quilt, mixed into all the quilting and design are hidden words of things we all deal with, will you take the time to find the words? Will you take the time to see beneath the surface in the people around you?
