I figured it out.

I was looking at the program for Road to CA show and realized that I entered into the wrong catagory.  There were three times as many enteries in Art Quilt category than in the category I entered Crazy Sheep into last year.  If I had entered the Sheep Wannabees into the category "other",  it would have been in the show. The learning curve for doing new things like entering into the shows, is sometimes steep. I wonder what would happen if I entered the quilt into the show for 2012 in the "other" category.  Would it would get hung?  Would it win a ribbon?

Since I didn't get my Sheep Wannabees hung in Road to CA,  I entered it into Oklahoma City and it won a blue ribbon  for "hand",  as opposed to the ribbon for "machine".  It didn't win any money and apparently came close (one vote short) to winning viewers choice and $250. 

We shipped the Wannabees from OKC to Road.  The box arrived at our hotel, (thanks to FedEx, it came as expected) on the first day at Road, so today it will be hung in our booth at Road.  We sold five CDs of the pattern for the Wannabees even without the quilt hanging in our booth.  Blind faith from our followers!
