Winning results - Townsville Show

After an exhausting two weeks of Judging, and hanging the exhibits for the Townsville Show, it's all done.  Last Thursday night was the Presentation evening, and there was a fabulous show up.
Some of our sponsors were there to present their prizes, and I was honored to be presented with the Innovative Champion Trophy by Jean Grove for my CQJP 2012 Crazy Patchwork Christmas Tree Skirt. 
To add more icing on the cake, I received 3 firsts and 2 seconds for my 8 entries. The three first's were for my gold beetle, Cheerful Fluttering's and my Crazy Patch thread roll.  The seconds were for my 'Doris' and Goldwork Poinsettia flower.

Getting a first for my beetle was a wonderful surprise and just adds to the excitement that little bug has created. Not to say I'm not excited about my other pieces, but he is something special to me now.  I am also over the moon about the tree skirt, it's amazing how many men have actually stopped and looks and oohed and aahed at it, very exciting.
After the show is finished I will post the winning champions.
