Mixed Media

You've heard of Mixed Martial Arts, right? Well, in this case, I present to you my newest treasured item:

State Champ Quilt
My State Champ Quiltlet!

You've read on here about my good friend and competitor, Sandy, on this blog often. Sandy is not only a very talented TKD person, but she is also an incredibly talented and creative quilter. She's on a small hiatus from TKD as she has a bad ankle injury that she is healing from, but she came to class today to bring me this beautiful gift. If you can't tell, that's me in the mini quilt! :-) She knew that I really wanted to have a State Champ uniform, but it's just too expensive right now, so she made this as my "Christmas/Valentine's/Mother's Day/Birthday" present. She was very meticulous in the details. She even went as far as to make sure she had the hairstyle and hair color (I'm back to my natural blonde after a year of attempting life as a redhead/strawberry blonde), the color belt I was wearing as the color belt champ when at the tournament when I clinched the points for the title, my name on the back, the Weapons patch, and even the weapons I used for the winning routine. It's better than any uniform I could get, for sure! I can't wait to hang it up somewhere in my house to display it.

How can you beat having friends like that?
