And the quilts go to........
And the winners are!!
The star quilt went to Marie and the pineapple blossom went to Andre!
This was SO much fun to do. It is just amazing how good it feels when someone's name is called and they are so shocked because they never win anything :c)
Again, I had a couple of people ask me if I would sell the quilts, and I said that although I quilt tops that other people had pieced, and I can charge a fee for that, I don't make quilts to sell from start to finish. They had a hard time understanding why, and I guess because if I do...I lose the joy of giving something like this. It becomes a "JOB"....instead of an expression of myself.
Not to mention that if I were to sell, I'd need to make more than a dollar an hour (I don't think people understand the time and the cost involved in quilting)....and selling for any price seems to devalue the worth of the quilt in the first place.
I'd rather give, because in giving I receive so much more than I ever could in selling.
And the world may never understand, but that's okay with me :c)
Oh, btw....I ACED the exam today with 100%! Only one more to go. That's tomorrows final practical hands on exam in neuromuscular therapy. By this time tomorrow I'll be DONE DONE DONE!!! Waahooooo!
