Showtime!








I'm repeating myself here as I have shown a picture of this little stitched basket before (it is a previous Jaynes Attic Monthly Challenge piece), but here it is again, feeling very proud of itself because it won Best in Show - Handicrafts at the Village Show yesterday ;D

I also won a "first place" with my driftwood sculpture, another with a Hardanger piece (French Brocade, which I've shown on here before), and a few firsts and seconds in the art, cookery and floral art sections. The girls did very well too. Naomi got a "first" for this "Flower arrangement in an unusual container", another for her chocolate chip cookies, gold and bronze medals in the childrens "flowers and veg mini tray" and "Best in Show - Photograph" against all the adult exhibitors, and Eloise got trophies for her miniature garden, photography, single flower floral arrangement, and, absolutely unbelievably, a first for her handwriting!

Oh and check out her "vegetable animal"!
