Of course everyone says it’s not the winning that matters it’s the taking part but you all know that they covet the prizes and the trophies! Well we had a winner in our household. Maia entered 3 classes and won ‘The Vegetable Animal’ and received prize money to boot.
2nd prize - a handmade crocheted item
This is a blanket I crocheted for Cassia and she used it all winter long
3rd prize - a homemade doorstop
3rd prize - a homemade toy
The knitted bracelet? Not a look in I'm afraid although first prize did go to a well deserved knitted scarecrow - oh how I wish I had that talent!
At one stage last week I wondered what on earth I was doing entering myself and the girls in so many classes but I am really glad I did. It made me do something I have not done before, knitting, and also made me try things that have been in my head for a long time. And the girls were very eager to show off their entries to the cuzzies and friends. It was great to watch all the children playing together and enjoying the weather and refreshment on offer! People I had been at school with were now there with their own children – and so the cycle continues.
Two very happy girls in the sun!
