Royal show needlepoint

Hi everyone,
I still haven't been able to stitch much yet. The thumb is very slowly getting better but this will obviously not be a quick fix thing.

Last week was the South Australian Royal Show (similar to a State Fair in the USA) and after many years of not submitting entries into the Craft displays I finally had something framed and finished at the right time of the year. I put in 2 entries, 1 in the canvas section and another in the cross stitch area. To my surprise both pieces won ribbons.

The photos are a little on the little side but they both now have glass added so taking the photos without shadows was a bit of a challenge. Unfortunately taking photos at the show venue is not allowed so sorry no photos of other lovely pieces there but with over 300 entries. I am so very happy about receiving 2 ribbons considering the standard of work on display this year.

Happy stitching, bye for now, Carol
