Fly Away...

 I have a really short post today. I'm too nervous to even talk!
"Over The River" is going on a little trip.
I'm on my way out the door to the UPS Store™ to send off my
first ever entry in the National Quilt Association Quilt Show.
 The Show is in Columbus, OH from May 23 - 25 this year - and this is 
my entry number. I packaged my quilt with TLC, according to the show
requirements, sealed up the box and almost immediately got all queasy. 
I've never entered a national show before. My throat is a little dry just thinking
 about it. (Oh, gosh. Will they like me? Will I get a ribbon? Will they realize they
 made a mistake and just box my quilt back up to return to me?) I kinda panicked.

If you're in Columbus while the show is in town, please look for my quilt.
I'd love it if you snap a picture of it hanging up at the show to send to me.
I know the competition is fierce, but I'm looking at it as a learning exercise.
Yeah. That's it. A learning exercise. Right.

 Wish me luck!
