This blog is a bit of a ramble through my life. There's a lot about quilting and textile arts, a sprinkle of my family life and some of my thoughts and ponderings. We currently live aboard an old wooden 1945 Navy boat, called MV Cerego, so you'll find me writing about that too. Welcome aboard!

Gobsmacked!

I am truly on a high! Tonight was the awards ceremony at Taupo Symposium and I was blown away to be up on stage twice.  My Tui at Dawn quilt won a merit award in the art quilt section and I also one the First Time Entrant award!

Talk about a rush!  I got all blushy and giggly and so many people congratulated me afterwards, it was absolutely amazing.

Thanks to Karamu Quilters and Cushla's Village Fabrics for my wonderful prizes.  And I would add a photo here of my great big box of goodies, except I'm posting this from my iPad and I can't figure out how.  So once I do, except a goofy photo of me next to my ribbons!

  2. Squeeeee! How exciting! Turn your ipad round to face you and use the camera, it's on an icon down the bottom of the screen somewhere. But don't ask me how to get a photo onto blogger from your ipad....ipads and blogger don't go well together imo

    Can't wait to see eventually!
