Chuffed to bits
Over the moon
Pleased as punch
On cloud nine
I was all these and more when I heard (thanks Susan!) my Camelot Quilt came first in the 'Hand-quilted' section of Amy's Bloggers Quilt Festival.
I know it's a harmless bit of fun but it's also an unexpected affirmation that others like what you like. When you're quietly stitching away in your little corner of the world, you don't really think about what others will think but then you show it to Mr Internet and suddenly it goes on its own cyber journey.
So my thank you is three-fold: to the internet for connecting all of us far-flung quilters together, to Amy for taking the time and trouble to help with that connection and a very, very big thank you to everyone who voted for my quilt. I am seriously shocked.
