Launceston Show

Yesterday was the Launceston Show Day public holiday. I dragged Dennis with me to check out the Cottage Industries section as I had entered a few of my bits.....

Right down the very back, my Tis The Season hanging on the wall with a BLUE 'first' ticket on it! It was entered in the hand quilted section. WOW!! Pretty pleased with that.....


I had also put in a book cover (in the book cover section) which I made a couple of years ago. It is a Janelle Wind pattern, with a Red Brolly stitchery...... Took us ages to find it, but we found it in a cabinet near the door. I got a 1st for that too! Prize for this is a gift donated by Sewknit, Launceston.... Wonder what it is?!



I had planned to make a doll (cloth doll, not a toy section), one I have had on my 'to do list' for SO long, but just didn't get time. So, as I had already entered a 'Christmas Doll', I went through my box of handmade Christmas goodies and found this Santa which was made about 2 or 3 years ago! I purchased this as a kit a long while ago, and as most of my kits do.... sit in the cupboard for SO long until I decide to make it up! Anyway....... I got a first for that too! WooHoo!




My other entry, a 'Christmas Tree Ornie' never got a placing. And, it is a finish for this month too and I have not taken a pic! I will when I get it back!
