You would think I would have learnt by now to start making my entries for craft shows several months in advance…well I haven’t! Yesterday was the Tockwith Show, a fantastic traditional agriculture show, with horse trials, dog shows, fur and feather competitions and crazy three year olds with inflatable hammers (yes, my little niece, I mean you!) So why was I there? Well other than wanting to see which of the eight identical rabbits was voted the most handsome and to see the world’s (probably) largest rabbit, that could have eaten Basil.
I was there to enter the Yorkshire Countrywomen’s Craft show. Considering four month’s ago I had said I couldn’t find any categories to enter, I ended up entrying six:
A hand painted or drawn picture of any part of the UK
An article of felting or felt work.
A toy in any medium
A hand knitted garment 4 ply or under.
Three decorated cupcakes
An item illustrating upcycling.
Most of my entries were ready week’s in advanced, however my drawing and my knitted garment took me slightly long than I planned. Both were finished in the eleventh hour.
So how did I get on and what did I enter?
Finally, the item illustrating upcycling. For this category you need to see the before and after picture.
No rest for the wicked though. I have finally finished knitting the vintage style celtic dragon jumper so I am currently editing the pattern. Watch this space as the pattern will be available for free soon.
