Yesterday was our annual village show. Think WI Tea Tents, dog shows, beautiful baby competition, lots of flower exhibits, best vegetable displays and of course the embroidery class.
I entered three pieces - one of which not only came first in its class but also won a cup for the best handicraft exhibit:
The piece is called Mother Earth and is a design by Polstitches. It was one of those pieces where every stitch is a pleasure. It didn't take too long to do and the colours are my favourite. It was my first real attempt at hardanger so I'm very proud of result - although I know now that it would be much neater and the kloster blocks more even.
There were some beautiful pieces of work being shown so I feel really honoured that the judges thought my pieces was good enough to win.
Now what shall I work on for the show next year?
