Celise won!!!!

May 30, 2012

I’ll start by showing you a picture of this quilt…

Those of you who have been following this quilt’s progress will remember the different stages it went through.

My husband and I drove from Prince Edward Island to Halifax, Nova Scotia today. After checking into our hotel and taking a bit of a break, we drove to Dalhousie University where the award ceremony took place.

I just got back to the hotel and am still vibrating! She won BEST IN SHOW!!!!! I couldn’t believe it! I took a peak at the show catalogue that someone had and saw many amazing quilts. I was lucky enough to be standing with a couple of the other prize winners. What fun!

My prize includes $1200 and a new sewing/embroidery machine from Husqvarna.

I took a few pictures on our way here and will take some more as we tour this historic city. I’ll post them here in a couple of days.

I’ll probably still be awake and vibrating!
