It's Exam Day!

Today I take the national certification boards for massage therapy and body work.

My exam is at high noon. Makes it sound like the show down between two gun slingers outside the saloon! My weapon? Memory cells. And I hope they will remember all I've crammed in there over the past 14 months!

I think I've studied all I can, though I will go back through the CD tutorial I have this morning, just to get me in the mood. :c)

The next time you hear from me, hopefully I'll be Bonnie Hunter, LMT!

This pic is a little find I found in an antique mall here in SC.


I just fell in love with this poor little guy, though the price was out of my range. What I found interesting is that though it looks like it is sashed with wide strips, that is actually part of the block! It's broken dishes in a 9 patch formation that makes the block. 5 broken dishes blocks, and 4 plain red (or blue, or that other melon color that has faded from what it once was)sewn together to make the 9 patch, and then the 9 patches are joined side by side to make the quilt top.


The fabrics in it are so fun, and the stitches are very child-like. So I'm wondering if this was made by a young girl as she learned to sew? Definately a scrap quilt from the scrap bag. It was quilted in a crosshatch with white quilting thread. I love how vibrant the reds and the yellows still are in it!

Could you feel the strong vibrations.....at high noon I starting think good thoughts for remembering everything you need to know for your exam. Once you are certified will we need to curtsy?

We'll all be waiting with baited breath to find out how you did. It's my bet that you are well prepared. Good luck!!! :-)

Neat quilt and congrats on the test. If you didn't live so far away I would call you for some quilting followed by a massage. You could start retreats that included massages after a day of quilting. What a way to stretch you mind muscles.

What a GREAT idea Dot!! A quilt retreat that includes a massage - aaaah absolute heaven :-) :-)

What a fun quilt! I thought for sure that was sashing too until you said it was part of the block! How fun!
