Prizes!

Last week a friend talked Bruce and I into providing her with a few of our projects to exhibit in a craft show organised by her daughter - the Ballan Craft show. Much to our surprise we won a few prizes.

Bruce won a first prize for this gorgeous cross stitch. It's definitely the best he has ever done.



He did it on a linen so fine you can barely count the threads as this close-up shows.



A well deserved first wouldn't you say?

I got a third prize for my Mystic Lights shawl.



And a second prize for my secret project which I now have to reveal although I've not gifted it yet.



It's Debbie Bliss' Alphabet Blanket.

Oh wow, such gorgeous projects. The first shot of the cross stitch, I thought it was a tiled piece. I didn't realise I was looking at x stitch. Wow.

I love both the mystic lights shawl and the blanket. Amazing red! Well done.
