Lilydale Show results.

After visiting the Lilydale Show today, I decided that I would only enter my craft work in that show from now on, and not bother with Whittlesea any more. Lilydale is closer to my home, and is a smaller show by comparison, but very well organised, and the Homecrafts display was so much more professional than at Whittlesea. Winning more prizes at Lilydale doesn't come into my decision - truly!
My "Owls" won second prize in its category. It was on the floor with several others, but they were laid out properly so you could see them, not just dumped there without thought.
The Iris quilt didn't win anything, but I didn't think it would.
My Halloween Witch was 'Highly Commended'. Have a look at the fabulous applique picture next to it!
Suffolk Puffs Flowers was 'Commended' as was the I Love Patchwork block which I forgot to photograh. 'My Pantry' won a third prize.
This one was a real surprise - I only entered it at the last minute, and it won a second prize! Just goes to show you can never be a good judge of your own work.
