Pleased as Punch --

Went to the International Ploughing Match quilt show yesterday in Shedden, Ontario. I was looking forward to see if any of my three entries won anything. At our guild meeting on Thursday, we were told that some members that had entered the show had won ribbons, however, we did not know who, we had to go the show and see for ourselves.

Having been to other shows and seen quilts that were works of art, and this being the first show that I have ever entered, I didn't get my hopes up too high.

I am so pleased, and I can't contain myself any long, so now I am going to brag a little. I won, I won, I won. All three of my entries received a ribbon.

English Cottage Garden -- 2nd.

Mother & Child --1st.
Birds of a Feather, Flock together --1st.
This one is my favourite, it was gorgeous.

Congratulations, Patricia! Two firsts and a second--on your first ever entering a show! I think you have underestimated your talent, girl. Very well done.

Congratulations! That is so wonderful! I hope those ribbons included a little prize money so you can buy more quilt fabric ;).
