It's a big deal

Okay, so let's say you build go carts. It's a hobby, it's fun. You have a little club.

Now let's say it turns out your club is invited to do a couple of exhibition laps at the Indy 500. Not competing against the pros (duhhh) but your little go cart is going to be right there at the event. With the real race cars.

I don't build go carts. I make quilts. Sometimes. When I have the time. I made the parrot quilt for "The Shapes and Colors of Costa Rica," an exhibit of quilts by Costa Ricans and residents like me. A quilt guild in Sioux City, Iowa sponsored this exhibit as a way to reach out to the local Hispanic community. The Costa Rican quilts will be displayed in the Sioux City quilt show for two days in October. (Here's a link to some information about the project.)

And today we found out that after the Sioux City quilt show, "The Shapes and Colors of Costa Rica" will be shipped to Houston to be included as a special exhibit at the International Quilt Festival. With the real race cars.

How cool is that.

Oh man, and I bet it forgot to pack its camera! Isn't that always the way. Congratulations to you and the birds.
