Great news!!

You've seen this picture before, but I'll share it again, because I have the best news!! ...

My Mrs Billings quilt placed first in it's category at the Royal Adelaide Show! And it also won Best in Section!! I'm just so happy - beyond thrilled actually!! Thank you all for your kind words while I've been working on it, so much appreciated :-)

I'm not sure if I remembered to share what I actually named my quilt ... its called: Mrs Billings meets a French General.

Almost sounds racy doesn't it? :-)
