Goodness Gracious! Is that a phrase you grew up hearing? I did.
And "goodness gracious" is about all I can say after what happened at the fair on Saturday.
I won a rather surprising ribbon for one of my entries.
As I was finishing my 6-Point Star quilt, I had in mind that I would put it in the fair. It was the motivation I needed to keep my efforts focused on finishing it. You can read about my finish here, or do a general search of the blog for '6-point star' for lots of progress reports.

I still have a hard time believing that this was selected for BoS; there were several very accomplished quilters in the same department, so I was definitely not expecting it.
And just so you know that I won't be getting a big head over this, my drive home from the fair served to keep me on an even keel. My car broke down; I had to call a girlfriend to come fetch me as DH was out for the day and a tow truck had to retrieve the car. I still have not heard from the mechanic what is wrong with it. Geesh.
I have linked up with Sew Fresh Quilts/Let's Bee Social; check it out for a dose of inspiration!
Happy Quilting, Friends!
