Royal Manx Agricultural Show: Judging Over....

I created. I entered. I kicked some booty!

Yes, what you see before your very eyes are the winning exhibits in the knitting & felting classes. More details about the Agricultural Show to follow soon but for now, I won:

- FIRST prize in the 'coarse yarn' knitting class for my lengthways knitted scarf (NOT the Liesel, funny story that.... later);

- FIRST prize in the 'felting' class for my turquoise 'B4 bag';

- SECOND prize in the 'felting' class for my red 'Romantic Ruffles' bag.

How can one top that, I hear you say. Well I'll tell ya. I received the Reserve Silver Cup ROSETTE for the best exhibit in the Open Classes in the Arts & Crafts Section for my lengthways knitted scarf.

How cool is that!!!

Little Miss CB didn't do too badly either. She who doesn't normally enter raffles or competitions, was delighted when she discovered she had won:

- FIRST prize in the 'drawing - colour work' class for her age for her picture of a bowl of fruit;

- THIRD prize in the 'needlework' class for 11yrs and under for her felt bunny pin cushion.

Didn't she do well!

That's all for now. I'll try to post a more detailed update in the coming days. So much to share, so little time and so very VERY tired. Yawn.

Thank you all for your kind wishes and luck.
