Last week was busy...very, very busy. I glanced at emails -- didn't open and read any, just glanced at them (that did a lot of good, didn't it?). Didn't have much fun time on the computer at all.
And then it was Saturday, October 15 - State Fair day! The Palmetto Tatters go to the South Carolina State Fair in Columbia, SC every year (that counts as our October meeting) and demonstrate the art of making lace with string and air. We had parked and were waiting for our ride into the fairgrounds, and Gloria walked over to wait with us - and congratulated me on my "big win."
"Oh!" I exclaimed. "I did win a blue ribbon!" (My work friends told me all along that I'd get a blue ribbon, and I had to bring back pictures so they could see it.)
Gloria said, "Well, yes, but I meant the big award - Most Innovative. You won that!"
I'm still in shock. I've gotten blue ribbons before, but never one of the big awards. This will keep me floating, up around Cloud 9, for quite some time!
