Happy Friday crafters!
You probably remember my post from last week about the Brookfield show. It was the second year I went to the show and it was pretty awesome this year again! And, as I mentioned, it was my first year participating in the craft competition.
I really liked making my first Tea Cosy, but some of the ones out there were just plain amazing! So, I didn’t place in the competition BUT the organisers were great and so everyone got some green tea as a gift 🙂 How nice right?
The big surprise for me was that I actually got 3rd place for my lace doily! I was so happy with getting my ribbon, and the comments I got were so lovely!
So I got home very happy about how I did, and I didn’t realise I was missing something. Later that night, someone was at the door to see me. One of the ladies volunteering for the Brookfield show, holding a plastic wrap in her hands. I had actually forgotten to get my prize for placing 3rd in the Novice lacemaking!
I received two beautiful skeins of DMC Natura Just Cotton and I can’t wait to use them to make something beautiful, maybe for the next Brookfield show?
P.S. I would really love to thank the amazing volunteers at the Brookfield show for their great work and organisation and also this lovely lady who came all the way up our driveway (it’s super steep) to give me my prize, that was some real dedication!
