Which translates as,

Dear Participants,

Ooooh, I am doing such a happy dance right now! No one here to tell the news, so I need to shout it out to the world. I don’t even know what I’ve won, but it’s toooo cool. Cool, cool, cool cool! OK, I’m going to go lay down now, before my head gets too big for me to hold it up.

  3. Congratulations! I know we make quilts to please ourselves but it’s so nice when someone else appreciates them too.

    i never was in doubt that you will win one of the prizes. the quilt is absolutely beautiful… from the stitching to the color choices… it´s just excellent. (okay, that all counts for your quilts in general… but i never-ever doubted you´re a winner!)
    enjoy the feeling! ^.^
