Stiff competition!


It was a fun evening last night and my goodness, the cooks, gardeners and needlewomen of the village turned out in force bringing the fruits of their labour for judgement.




Sadly, my card was outclassed by masterpieces of parchment craft and quilling.  My photo didn’t do so well either, but then we do have some ace photographers in our midst.




But surprisingly, my little patchwork bag got a first, in spite of that amazing cathedral window cushion.  I think the judge was rather taken by the handles ;-)

My sourdough loaf looked fantastic but was up against a few good, traditional loaves baked by breadmakers who have years of experience, not to mention considerable talent.




I did get another first prize, though, in the class for things which had gone wrong!
