I have a confession

I enter things in the local show. Things I have sewn. Every year. For about 6 or 7 years now. I started entering items because I was bored witless as a SAHM and needed a goal with a deadline to motivate me. I no longer need a goal to motivate me but I like to enter something all the same. Probably because I never recived many prizes when I was younger.

The last few years I have been entering in the Natural Fibres Creations competition. You enter through the local show and then there is a state final held at the Ekka if your entry comes first or second.

This year my daywear entry (trench coat, shirt and pants) came in second. I am thrilled to say the least.  My aim for this year and future years is to only enter garments that I will actually wear - so that genereally rules out the evening wear and creative clothing categories and makes the daywear category a little more restrictive since I am not doing fun racewear.

I am only a little cranky that the Lord Mayor called me Murray. That totally sent me back to high school.


  1. Woohoo - congrats!! Thats a kick ass prize pack too, beats the little certificate you usually get at the show! I've never entered any clothing in the show, have done flower arrangments and cross-stitch way back when I was a young kid/teen but nothing since I've been an adult.

    1. Yeah, they give out the little certificates at the local show. This is like a state final will some awesome prizes.

  2. Congratulations! I didn't know there were contests for sewing other than quilts...that's really awesome.

  3. Congratulations on your recognition! Very cool.

  4. Congratulations!

  5. Hey congratulations! I went to see the sewing... maybe put up your pieces to show. I'd love to see them.


Thanks - I love receiving comments.
