A fly on the wall

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!!!!!

    1. Yes - it's very cool. And it's a panel! It's brand new (by Northcott) and will be out sometime later this year.
      Thanks for following along! Elaine
