Friday was a GREAT DAY!

Sorry....the photos will be in a later post....but FRIDAY WAS A GREAT DAY! I learned that My Epitaph Quilt, a Grave Rubbing Art Quilt, was accepted into the Australian Quilt Challenge at the AP&Q (Australian Patchwork and Quilting) Quilting Convention in Melbourne and will travel the country for the coming year! I also attended the opening of Palmetto Hands, the only juried fine art crafts exhibit in South Carolina at the North Charleston Arts Festival. Stained Glass XV won an outstanding merit award and at least one of my pieces was selected for the traveling exhibition. Furthermore, we received a message with a link to a BRB (Birmingham Royal Ballet) rehearsal video of Mathias dancing Brouillard's. This next weekend the ballet company is performing Swan Lake at the Virginia Arts Festival in Steve's hometown, Norfolk! Of course we are going and have tickets to all three shows....just in case Mathias is cast in the role of Benno, the Prince's friend. May 9th is Mother's Day but it is also Mathias' 22nd birthday. It will be the first time since he was 12 that I'll be able to see him on his birthday! We've got our fingers and toes crossed for "good casting"!
