A Ribbon for Reindeer!

A couple of months ago, I blogged about fully finishing my reindeer candle ring, and that I did...—with crystals and beads and pompoms and sleigh bells. When January rolled around, it was either enter it as a miniature in a quilt show or sentence it to a drawer until next December. I went with the quilt show and was I ever glad I did!

It was a complete shock, surprise, and thrill of a lifetime to get an e-mail a couple of days before the MQX East show, that Rudolph and friends had won a ribbon in the computerized quilting division. At the awards ceremony, there was no Vera Wang gown to trip over, and fortunately not even stairs to climb, but I was glowing more than any starlet at the Oscars… so excited.


The proud mom!

My tiny beauty has all the visitors spellbound!
Now that winning a ribbon in a major show is crossed off my bucket list, I guess I can stop sewing.


I have now started another mission to fully embellish my “Spring Cottages”…  and we will keep you posted on how that ends!
