Outstanding non Women's Institute Entry - Wren Cup

An article designed and made by the exhibitor was the category I entered my Wainwright Wallhanging into and it came up trumps... So I was presented with this sweet little cup at our AGM on Thursday by Melanie who is Secretary of the Thornthwaite, Braithwaite, and Newlands Home and Garden Show. My name is also in the local papers.... I also gained a First for my Irish Chain Quilt, a Second for my filled Crewelwork cushion and a Second for my 4 Fruit Marmalade. Wow.. But that is not all that won as Melanie came First with her embroidery and Sally came First with her filled cushion. So the ladies of Keswick EG did very well and my congratulations go to all of them who took away a prize. Also we must thank Melanie for encouraging us to put something into the show.

Thank you méri, I am thrilled to make embroidery which gives others pleasure because I derive so much myself from other people's embroideries and I loved your hydrangeas, I grow about 5 in my garden in Cumbria.
