Pinch Me, Please!

Untitled

Holy shit! Sorry if I offend, but seriously I am in total shock right now. I was sitting in a bar in Santiago, Chile, minding my own business. I politely asked if they had WiFi available. They did. So I checked my emails. And I think somebody, somewhere made a huge mistake because I had this waiting in my inbox...

Will somebody please pinch me? I have to be dreaming. Honestly, when I heard how many entries there were and how few quilts they were accepting I thought there was absolutely no way in hell that my quilt would get picked. You want some real honesty here? I even chickened out at the last LAMQG meeting and didn't share it at the Show and Tell because I was too scared. Yeah, had the thing with me but I was a scardy cat. Um... I guess I need to finish picking the tape and hide those last tails.
