Woo Hoo!

I got an exciting email today from Pippa Eccles, Assistant Editor at Quilting Arts Magazine. Holy Smokes -- my entry to the "Let Out Your Inner Animal" reader challenge has been selected as a finalist!! Can you hear me scream? Is your floor shaking because I'm jumping up and down so much?

Wow, wow, wow is all I can say. Oooh, and woo hoo, too!

Since this piece is being considered for publication I'll save posting a picture of it for another day . In its stead I'll leave you with this one: a Southern sting ray about 8 feet long that we encountered during a snorkel. Check it out; his tail goes to the edge of the picture. He's HUGE. I'm so glad he was in a good mood.
