I got a phone call yesterday afternoon to tell me Peace#1 had won the Bed Quilt award at the Great Northern Quilt Show in Harrogate.
They asked if I could go up to receive my trophy but today is dedicated to DD to get all the things she needs to go to uni in a couple of weeks.
Lovely, another ribbon for my wall. They said they could post me the trophy but I asked them to send a jpg instead as when I have something in the house which I have to hand back, I live in fear the cat will knock it onto the floor and I'd have to replace it. (and I'm not good at polishing)
The Festival of Quilts do not give ribbons (I think they think it below them). I personally love getting them. I work away in my workroom having total crises of confidence thinking I'm producing rubbish and all I have to do is glimpse my ribbons and then I know I can produce something worthwhile. I never dreamed I would get even one, so my little collection is precious.
