Beware...


... Show Secretaries bearing gifts.

I have no idea what I'm going to do with this for the next year. Having entered stuff for the village show, I won prizes (first for knit and crochet, second for embroidery; which was a moment of some chagrin, as the piece in question had won actual money in national competition, but was headed off in the village by a very beautifully-executed cross-stitch of the Grand Canal (and may be the reason my embroidery adult ed. class in the village didn't happen this year)) and it turned out I got the Most Points in Craft Classes.

Anyway; Sandra came round, somewhat apologetically, with the Engraved Thing (AKA the Transcore Transformers Shield) this evening. All I need to do is put it somewhere I can find it for the first weekend in September next year...

What do you mean "where do I put it?" you give it pride of place in the sitting room, of course. I've still to win a first prize at the village show. I know the criteria used in my village include things like "the bigger the piece and the finer the yarn, the better it is". I'll never forget the time that someone was praised for her "stunning choice of materials" for something that came from a kit. But it was, indeed, a truly beautiful piece, worked with more eveness and skill than I could hope to aspire to!
