I believe that etsy came out with the Nasa/Etsy Space Craft Contest – to the Moon and Beyond at some point in October. I’m not really sure as it was apple season and I didn’t have time to eat and sleep let along participate in the contest. Multiple people contacted me letting me know about this contest and how I should enter my Galaxies Converge Quilt that I made for Project QUILTING. Of course, I had sold that quilt back in August when it was in the Madison Paper. To be able to enter the contest you have to be able to potentially send them the item (if you win) so I had to re-make the quilt if I wanted to enter. The due date was midnight on November 2nd. Apple season ended October 31st. On November 2nd, I dropped the girls off at the sitter in the morning, delivered our apples to the school, grabbed a cup of coffee and went to work. Before I picked up the girls I had finished AND photographed the quilt. And later that evening I managed to get the quilt listed before the deadline. I tried to patiently wait a week and a half to see if I made the first cut (they put 50 of the ‘best’ of each category into the voter). When I was at the Quilts By Barb Quilt retreat I was happy to discover that my quilt had made the cut! WooHoo! After all that, here’s my plea to you…I need your VOTES! The voter is only open for a few more days – 11:59 pm on Friday, November 19th, so please don’t wait and vote now: http://www.etsy.com/voter_list.php?ref=voter&room_id=113 Thanks so much for all your support!
