It was a successful opening. The food was good and everyone was very complimentary about my work.
I was determined to wear my new red shoes (love them!) even if my feet became numb! I managed just fine. My daughter and son-in-law took family and friends out to dinner afterwards. They toasted me and I thanked them all for their support. And I thanked the family for putting up with the mess in the house as I framed 34 pictures.
The son-in-law is cooking dinners for a week to give me a break after all the Christmas cooking I did. My next projects will be fabric and I'm planning to submit works to all the juried shows I can.
Today I will watch football with Mr. B while I try to organize things on my computer. My new book is calling me. Thanks family for the Amazon gift cards! The Best of Quilting Arts: Your Ultimate Resource for Art Quilt Techniques and Inspiration. Notice in the sidebar that I follow Melody Johnson's Blog Fibermania. Melody has a section in this book.
