What does a Quilter do on Oscar Sunday?

Are you going to get dressed up today and celebrate the Oscars?

Are you getting a facial, manicure, pedicure?  What about your hair and makeup?

While you may be busy getting ready for the Oscar Awards ceremonies and parties, some of you may have decided to ignore the Oscars and quilt!

While I hope you have a wonderful quilty day today I also  hope you don't ignore your opportunity to nominate those that have made a difference in helping to make our world of quilting so wonderful.  If you haven't already submitted your nominations for the 2012 Golden Quilter Awards, I hope you'll take time today to submit your nominations.  There are ten categories, but you need not submit a nomination for each category. The important thing is you take time to recognize deserving quilters by nominating.

I'll be dressed 'down' and working on my newly converted hand crank sewing machines while watching the Oscars. At 49 and 'fluffy' I can't compete with those size 2's. Even in my super skinny days I was never a size 2. GO EAT Hollywood! PS: I'm thinking about your list.

Thanks again for hosting this fun event! I've just submitted my nominations and posted on my blog. Is there a way I am supposed to officially register as a PR angel? http://ncweekendquilter.blogspot.com/
