Calendar Quilt - the quilting is done!!!


I wish you could see how excited I am.  Why you ask?  Why am I so excited?  Well.....holy cow!!!!

I just got an e-mail telling me my calendar quilt top has been quilted and is on it's way to the post office.  My insides are jumping all around.  I did a high-pitched squeal (which is NOT becoming from a soon-to-be 58-year old fat woman).  I did a little dance around the room, a hop and a skip, and a couple of twirls.  After all that, I'll probably be laid up for the weekend because I've thrown out my back.

Debra at Debra's Design Studio quilted it based on what my daughter wanted (something very simple).  I had asked Debra if she would send  me a couple of photos since all of you know I can't post pictures to my blog (I'm hanging my head in shame).  Debra posted photos of my quilt on her blog that you can see here.  Please go look at them.

Go on.......  I'll wait..........  See -  I'm patiently waiting for you to read it.

Are you back?  Surprise - I got photos!!!!  I'm so excited!!!  I e-mailed Debra and asked for permission to copy her photos to my blog, and haven't heard back from her yet.  But I wanted to post something so bad, I figured what the heck.  Later on, I can post the photos here after I've received permission.  After all, I need to follow all the rules and be a nice blogger.

Hurry, Mr. Postman.  Please hurry.  Jumping up and down in anticipation isn't helping me lose weight.  It's just making my back hurt.

LOL you do make me laugh Deborah.
I did pop over and the quilting is lovely. It is so expensive in Aussie to have a quilt professionally done I have only ever done one. Have to do my own quilting.:(
