I put the chevron quilt into this village show and got a First for it.

The prize money was a magnificent - 60p!! Ta da.....

Gillian, who helps me garden (well, she gardens and I help her) put in this snake made from bottletops and got a Second, prize money 40p.

Lots of exhibits including Art work from the Friday Art Group I belong to - a total of 20 prizes, 1st, 2nd and 3rds. Not mine this year. Cross stitch pictures, hand made cards, photography classes, knitting and jewellery. There was wonderful miniature furniture in the 'Other Crafts' section, which won First there.
Fantastic flowers, oodles of tomatoes, huge marrows, one being carried out cradled in its owner's arms like a baby, jams, pickles and cakes that you could hardly keep your hands off... Lots of classes for children, too, who were well represented.

For 'just a village show' there are so many classes to enter and plenty of active participants, nice to see, unlike my village which has nothing...

Ho hum.

Well done Silve! I am wondering what you will do with your prize money, will you invest, or simply go on a cruise? :D

Well done. Now don't spend that prize money all at once.
