It needs to be delivered Friday morning. How did it get accepted? There was a call for entries, and I took a chance. I take a lot of chances. Either nothing happens, or great things happen. So why not!? There's nothing to lose is there?
I also took a chance and submitted some photos, though I'm not a professional photographer. I said I would make greeting cards with mounted prints. They were accepted! They will be at the Bessborough's public silent auction on Sunday. I just finished them this morning. Now I need to tie them with a ribbon and make them look pretty.

I'm pretty proud of these. Everyone takes pictures of the hotel from far away, on the other side of the river. EVERYONE. Sometimes there are different seasons, or angles, or skies, but they are all very similar. People have been doing that for YEARS! (75 to be exact.) So I crossed the South Saskatchewan river and got up close and personal. The above shot was taken from the red double-decker bus that sells the best summer lemonade in town! The pic below is my favorite. I will quilt this some day!

I have two pack of each photo, with 4 cards per package in the silent auction. Half of the proceedes go to Habitat for Humanity if you want to go check it out. If you aren't familiar with that charity, they are the volunteers who build homes for those in need.
The other "big Friday deadline" is for a proposal to Quilting Arts Magazine. They've put out a call for submissions for the April/May 2011 issue which will focus on fibre art LANDSCAPES. How can I not do this one!? Even if I don't get accepted, I would never forgive myself for not trying. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Right? With that I have no photos. But I do want to show off this morning's sunrise! Have a great day.
