I guess I need to get over this feeling.
Yesterday, EC took me out to buy me a digital camera. One with which to photograph my Quilts, or pieces thereof, to post on this site. We were going out to get in the car and , as an aside, EC asked me to get the mail.
Three things were in the mail box, things at which I never look, but EC's eagle I spotted. There it was, addressed to me. I told EC, "either this is very good news, or very bad news." As it turns out, it was the bad.
The letter was from the International Quilt Association and, yes, it was a rejection letter. It was a very long rejection letter, but at the end of a long first paragraph, it did say my entry in the Quilt Festival had been rejected. The term they used was, "not accepted", but rejected none the less.
Well, I have tried not to think about it. After all, I'm not dead or anything like that. However, it does sting a bit. I thought my Quilt was a good effort, one that would add a bit to the overall event that is "Quilt Houston". They didn't agree. The letter, from Charlotte Warr Andersen herself, went on to explain about the number of Quilts entered and how some had to be eliminated, blah, blah, blah.
Anyway, it is a 'low Chic' that I am.
On a high note, we did get me a camera. Those of you who know me, know that directions are not something that I get, and there is a book full of them, but hopefully, soon there will be photos to accompany my writtings. The very first of which will be some of that 'Fussy Cutting' that has been taking up all my time of late.
We'll talk more later, when I pass this 'Blue State'.
I am still,
