Any way, the day after that news arrived, I had a phone call from Embellish Magazine to tell me I had won 2nd prize in their Embellished Scarf Competition and a cheque’s in the mail, so that made me feel a little better. It’s been quite a while since I entered and I had presumed that I was unsuccessful. The scarf will be on display at the Brisbane Textile Fair, then it will come back to me.
The bad news first: my quilt, Red Gum, was not selected for Stitched & Bound. I’m just posting the detail pic today because I will submit the quilt for other exhibitions. This time I went to the trouble and expense of professional photos but I’m not sure if that helped. I think they sharpened the image too much and the colour is actually a bit darker than the photos. I would have taken them back but didn’t have time.
DH with the remains of our tree after the tree loppers finally came back and finished the job. And below, a couple more garden pics of native plants that are flowering in our front garden now.
