It's now in pride of place on our bedroom wall. I just love looking at it every day, I think I can say it is honestly my favourite cross stitch I've finished for myself ever.
I don't think the photos do justice to just how beautiful the framing job is. It's gorgeous. And how did it do in the show? I was extremely lucky. This piece got first place in its category (cross stitched sampler). I also got two other firsts (unframed cross stitch, framed cross stitch 15cm-30cm2) and a third (framed cross stitch 15cm-30cm2). Which meant that every single piece I entered placed! When I went to pick up my pieces the ladies were so welcoming and were truly pleased to have a young person getting involved in the handicrafts sections. I'll certainly be entering again this year.
That's all for now,
