I got Champion - Townsville show

After 4 years of trying I have finally won Champion of Hand Embroidery and Needlework at our Local show.  My piece called 'Bonsai Wisteria', came first in the raised surface embroidery section, which put it into the running for Champion of Section, which it won, Yippee.....


Bonsai Wisteria is being offered on Joggles as a 5 week class read here all about it.

My Mermaid came second in the same class.
I also won first and second for two more pieces respectively.

My Twines in Nature piece which I have reworked and converted into a book for my ATC's.

and Spring Blooms which is also being offered as a class on Joggles, read here for more details.



So do you think I'm excited.....  more about the show on the Townsville Arts and Crafts Blog... link right. Update shortly to come.

big congratulations for your beautiful needlework, such lovely work you must be thrilled to bits, so many awards and rightly so

Well done, Arlene, that's fab!

I'm delighted to see that my local Show has added 'embroidery' to their crafts section. Before there were only knitting, crochet, sewing and cross stitch. So, I'm entering at least one piece in the cross stitch and the maximum three in the 'embroidery' category.=)
