thank you for voting for me!

The Handmade Olympics are over, and I wanted to thank everyone who went over and voted for my Noah's Ark Quilt. I really appreciate your support! I didn't win, but I got 148 votes. Thank you so much for voting!

Speaking of voting... you might remember back in December I entered my Wreath of Doves quilt in the Holiday Traditions quilt contest at quiltinggallery.com. Well, turns out, I did win a prize in that contest! A few weeks ago I received the book Creative Ways With Books & Journals by Sue Bleiweiss and Terri Stegmiller. It's a fun book-making book filled with fabric, paper and mixed media ideas for bookmaking. Here's my favorite project in the book:
Bookmaking is one of the things I've been interested in for a long time, and it's on my list of things to do in 2010. Maybe I'll start with this little stab stitched book!
