What an amazingly interesting day! I spent the day as an Aide for the CQA judges. What does that mean?
It means that I got to be a fly on the wall as the judges looked at each and every entry for the National Juried Show. And I got to have a close up look at all of them as well. Let's just say that I learned a LOT. All of the information is strictly confidential, but when I have a moment, I shall talk about some of the general comments.
It was a LONG LONG day. I think I arrived at the International Center at 8 AM (the same time, hundreds of kids were arriving for the Mental Math games). I got home at 10 PM. Yes - judging is a long, long process and we're not done. That's why I only have a few minutes as we are due back at the International Center for 8 AM to finish up by noon.
And to top it all off, I had a quilt that needed to be quilted by this morning. Let's just say that I got up an extra hour early this morning and the quilt is ready to go!!!
|Quilt - DONE|
And yes, I did manage to get about half of the binding hand stitched yesterday when we had down time between the categories. The rest has to be done TONIGHT!
On that note - I'm out of here.
Have a great day!!!!!
