Happiness is cross stitching blog

Showtime !

It was our local village show on Saturday and my Mother, sister and I all entered, I put an embroidery in the ‘general embroidery section’ ( this ‘Butterfly Passion’ pattern can be found at www.dimensions-crafts.com ), my sister entered a quilt in the ‘any other handicraft section’ and my mother entered a cross stitch in the cross stitch section and we came away with some prizes! I won First Prize and my sister won the First Prize and Special show prize for her quilt, unfortunately I do not have a full size photo of the quilt but here is the one I took at the show, I shall post a full picture of the quilt later. There are twelve blocks to represent each month of the year, each block was stitched individually and pieced together, it looks amazing when you see it close up.

My Mother was a little disappointed that she did not win anything but she has won the special show prize at this show two years ago and she won best in craft and best in show at another show last year! I shall try to get some pictures and show you the trophies.
We are entering in another show at the beginning of September, I will keep you posted!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
