Once upon a time there were two friends....

......bestest stitching friends they shopped for stash together, planned projects together and laughed till they cried together.

One day Colly decided to visit Samantha and bring lots of stitching with her. On the day Colly came to visit the village that Samantha lived in was celebrating Summer by hosting a Village Show.

People came from far and wide to enter vegetables, flowers, breads, scones, jams, sponge cakes, knitting and embroidery into the exhibition.

Colly and Samantha chose some of their favourite pieces of stitching and took them down to the large marquee.

It was a hot, hot day in July when Colly and Samantha nervously entered the Marquee to see what the judges thought of their work. The two friends walked towards the table each hoping the other had won a prize.

As they approached Samantha saw a yellow ticket by Colly's stunning piece of Hardanger.............



Samantha's bell pull was proudly sporting a blue ticket......


And then they saw a pink ticket by Colly's beautiful sampler ............


A masterpiece by Colly.

The two friends hugged each other happy that they had both won a prize. Later that day when Samantha and Colly's lover Richard went down to collect the prize money (£4.50 to share) there was a surprise.

The Mrs S B Ward Cup, for best embroidery, knitting or sewing in Show was awarded to Mrs C Robinson of Nottingham, England............


Colly was so excited as it was the first time she had won a cup and Samantha was happy because the name of her bestest stitchy friend was going to be next to hers.

The two friends decided that every year they would both enter stitching into the Birstwith Village Show...........................in fact I've got to go and work on my entry for next year!!!!!
