Holy cow, I am so honored to have received an invitation yesterday to the 50 State Salute Award Ceremony at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky!

I knew that my quilt had done some traveling, but I didn’t realize it had yet to be presented. I would love to be present, but I’m unclear from the invitation if the award ceremony is in January, or August?

    How awesome! I would certainly get the details and then GO! What an honor, my friend.

    I was also confused, so I double-checked
    “August”; au·gust
    /ôˈɡəst/
    adjective
    adjective: august
    respected and impressive.
    “she was in august company”

    Unfortunate word choice for an invitation though 🙂

    But definitely you should feel honored! What a nice thing!

      Definitely a weird word choice! I’ve never hears august used in that manner. I am beyond honored! Such a great cause.

    I thing august in this case means impressive and respected.

      Thank you Roxann. I wonder what the August comment is in reference to?
