I can't believe it, I WON!!!!!!


You may rememer that recently I created this little quilt for the Margaret Every Challenge at my local quilting shop.

The standard was very high and I had quite a few favourites myself.
There is a link here to see just a few of the entries.

I went to collect my quilt today and was surprised (indeed shocked) to hear that I had actually won the challenge prize.
I have not stopped smiling yet. I was presented with a gift voucher (which I have spent already!!!) and I get my name engraved on the Bramble Patch Challenge Cup.

I had to laugh really because Monday is my house cleaning day and I generally wear slobbing about clothes, ready for dog walkies and standing-in-the-shower-while-I-clean it sort-of-clothes. The same clothes that I wore to 'nip-to-the-said - quilt-shop-to-buy-a-fat-quarter-collect-quilt-and-go-home-for-more-cleaning'. Not expecting to be photographed as a challenge winner !!!

It was a good job I had brushed my hair, teeth and slapped a dot of lipstick on before I left the house.
There should be a picture of me uploaded onto The Bramble Patch website within a couple of days - don't look too closely at my scruffy attire - how I wish I'd worn a pretty dress!!!

I knew you will win! :) your quilt is so original and realistic! You should be smiling!

Don't worry about the picture! It is more natural in your cleaning clothes.

Congratulations again! I am very happy for you!

CONGRATULATIONS! A well deserved win, your entry is stunning! Monday is usually my housework day too, and every time I try to nip to the shops wearing no make-up and my 'yardies' I always see someone I know!!!
