This N That #11

My quilt, Road to Home, was accepted to the AQS Knoxville show in July! I'm very excited about this, it's my first AQS show!  DH and I are planning to try to go for one day of the show, but it's mighty long drive to see it. 
Something really cool is happening right this moment that I can't tell you about yet, but I'm super excited about it.  More will come about this later, for sure. 
Yup, that's a dove in that hanging basket outside, and I have named her Ethel.
DH doesn't like the old-timey names I give the animals outside, like George and Gracie, our mated duck pair that waddle by the windows every morning.
Here is Ethel's nest... so cute!

Ever notice that polka dot fabric never seems to be "just right"?  I've been on a recent polka dot search, and either the dots are too big, too small, one color, multi colors in colors you don't want, or (the worst) the dots are spaced too far apart.
As you may know I'm president of the local quilt guild, and those of us on the board are making signature blocks to exchange to commemorate the year.  It's a fun thing I did while president of the Baltimore Heritage Guild and I think we'll enjoy making a little quilt out of our cute blocks.

Congrats on the acceptance. There is nothing like it! Yahoo!

My goal is to get into Houston some day.

Wow! Congratulations! I used to live in Knoxville TN and I still go there a lot. When is this quilt show?
