Congrats Barbara!!!

I have mentioned my wonderful mother-in-law, Barbara Corry, on this blog several times.  You know, the fabulous binding fairy that hand sews my bindings because I detest doing that!!  She was also my companion at Quilt Market and I can't begin to express how grateful I was that I wasn't all alone my first time.   She is always there for me in my quilting adventures and I love her for that!!


What I haven't mentioned, is that she has also been running for State School Board over the past few months.    And as of early this morning,  I am  happy to report that she won her race and is now a member of the Utah State School Board representing District 15 (aka Washington and Iron Counties).  CONGRATS MOM!!!!  I am so proud of you!!!!


So today is a celebration at the Corry households!!  So grab a piece of cake and celebrate with us!!
Pin It!

  6. I love people dedicated to education. As a volunteer myself, I just nominated a teacher at my daughters school for an excellence award ~ and she won!
    Teachers and education are the basis for adult life; no doubt about it and society needs to acknowledge good educators.
    Way to go M-I-L.

  11. That's wonderful. Congratulations to your mother-in-law. I am lucky enough to have such a wonderful mother-in-law myself. She's the one who got me interested in quilting years ago. I didn't have a chance to do any until I retired. Now it is my main interest! Best wishes to your Mom!
