Show results

First prize!! How exciting! My Yuletide Faerie won first prize at the local show! You may remember that I made 2 of these recently, one for Helen and one for myself! The pattern for her was in the Xmas In July edition of Homespun and the designer was Country Keepsakes:

Here she is, with her 'sash' looking pretty pleased with herself!

And, I won 2nd prize for this:


Buttons & Bows designed by the lovely Gail Pan! This was one of the Evendale Winter Gathering patterns Gail designed for the day.


Remember this quilt? It was a joint effort with Roseanne helping me make this for my in-laws (her parents) for their 50th Wedding Anniversary. We both pieced it all together and done some applique and then I hand quilted it:


We thought it turned out pretty good, so decided to enter it in the show as well..... and we won 2nd prize!! How exciting! I was thinking of sewing the ribbon on the back, across ways - one edge sewn in the bottom corner and the other edge on the side...... what do you think?

You can imagine my surprise when I returned home to find 3 ribbons waiting for me - though I only really have half of the Anniversary Quilt lol! I was pretty 'chuffed'!
This afternoon was spent putting some borders on a quilt I am working on, but cant really show you all just yet.... in time :+)
I have drawn out the winners of my Store's Giveaway, I will not post the winners just yet, as I will contact them first...... Keep an eye out, it may be YOU!!
