Unexpected Award

You've seen this jacket before.  I entered it into the local Woman's Club Arts and Crafts competition back in February.  It won a First Place in its category and so went onto the District competition where it won another First so it went on to the State Conference competition this past weekend.  I had completely forgotten about it so I was so surprised when I learned that it not only won another First, but Best Of Show! I guess they were impressed by all those French knots on the front and back and the lovely silk fabric.  Unfortunately it's not a good fit but the judges didn't know that.

This was not just a sewing competition, but all kinds of arts and crafts including painting, all kinds of sewing, knitting, crochet, photography and much, much more.

I Just realized that the SAQA auction quilts are due June 1, so I'd better get going on that.  I'll show you when I'm done.

Super duper congratulations! I've loved this piece ever since you first showed it- the red on red really shows of the texture and I'm so happy it's getting recognition!
