Guess what?? I won a prize. 3rd in my category at the Sydney Quilt Show - "the most prestigious quilt event in Australia" said Mr Bernina at the prize giving.
The phone call on Sunday night said be there at 9.30 Wednesday morning to receive a prize. Was it my quilt or our raffle quilt from the Springwood Show and lo and behold it was for my Birds in Paradise quilt. Can you believe it!
My dear friend Judy won 2nd prize in her category and the 1st place went to someone else's version of her prize-winning quilt from 2 or 3 years ago. How freaky is that?
It was a great day meeting lots of old faces during my volunteering time and cruising the shops tho I was so worn out I didn't buy one thing. How good is that.
Get on down if you have the chance - it's a really great show!
