My Two First's Yesterday!

 I had a great day yesterday, I sold my first sewing machine at Bernina Northland in the morning (I did a happy dance after the customer left). And then in the afternoon at Quilt Club we had a Seam Ripping Race, and I won!
This is the only speed race I'll ever win, and the nearest I'm ever getting to an Olympic Medal!
Come to think of it, this maybe the first race I have ever won, though I do remember coming second in an egg and spoon race as a child.

For all those wondering how I ripped that nine patch apart so quickly yesterday. This video above shows the technique I used.
