Show Success

A lady that recently attended one of the workshops here at Cartwheels suggested that I enter some of my work into the handicraft section at the ‘Liskeard and District Prime Stock Show’.  I have never entered any of my work into any competitions before but I decided to have a go.

I entered three classes within the handicraft section, ‘A framed item of cross stitch’, ‘A machine made article’, and ‘Any handicraft other than the other classes’.  The items I entered were a framed cross stitch picture of wild flowers, a quilted play mat I made for my little boy and a shaggy rag cushion that I recently made in one of the workshops here at Cartwheels.

To my amazement I won a first for my cushion and a third for my cross stitch.  Not only that, but I won ‘The Perpetual Handicraft Cup’ for the exhibitor gaining most points in the handicraft section.  What a complete surprise!  There is no stopping me now, I am on the lookout for the next competition.

If any one likes the shaggy rag cushion, we will be holding another workshop here at Cartwheels on the 8th March 2014.
