Back in February 2012, I entered the "Madeira Embroidery Competition 2012" the theme being Glimpses of Blighty. There were two categories hand or machine embroidery. I am a hand embroiderer and so entered that category. Selected entrants were displayed at the Fashion, Embroidery & Stitch Show held on the 22nd - 25th March 2012 at the NEC, Birmingham, England. I attended the show on the Saturday as I was informed that my work would be displayed. I there discovered that I was not only the winner of the Hand Embroidery Category. I was also the Overall Competition Winner!!! (wooohoooo). For the hand embroidery category I won a sewing caddy with lots of Madeira threads and a crystal goblet. For the overall winner I won a sewing machine (OMG), a sewing caddy which contained lots and lots and lots of Madeira threads and a rose crystal bowl which I hold for a year. I am so pleased with myself I dont think I have stopped smiling since. I hope that you like my work?
