We went down early to put in our exhibits, 5 photographs, 4 for DB and one of mine and I also entered the friend ship quilt.
We went back after lunch to see what had won prizes:
First prize for DB with this photograph of a Canadian Soldier on the War Memorial in Princes Street Gardens.
The dovecot at Phanatisse in East Lothian. a second for me in the class.
I was busy looking to see what, if anything, our photographs had got when DB said, 'come and look at your quilt'. There was a red label on it a first prize, but also best in the class and Best in Show!! I was speechless.
I came home with these
Its the first time I have even entered a village show of any description. In the village for just over 2 months and I walked away with best in show. I was asked by some ladies who wanted to see the quilt opened up if I would join the local Women's Institute!! Not so sure about that!! We have £2.50 in prize money to come as well.
The Friendship quilt is very special to me, some of the fabrics came from my friend Barbara in the US. My quilting guru cotton reel did the applique for the top and it was machine quilted by Aileen Bunker in Eyemouth. Really all I did was put the strips together.
It was dull and a very cool 8c when we got up but has turned into a glorious day, sun shining and quite warm.
Loaf on and the lamb is in the oven for supper, I need to come down off cloud nine.
