I promised Ann I'd show the articles I entered for the competition, for which I showed the trophies yesterday.
This is Jane Eborall's Flowery SCMR bookmark, with a slight adaptation from Susie. It received 2nd place.
This is Roses and Vine bookmark, designed by Paula Gero, which won a first place and the little jug trophy.
This is a shopping bag in Tunisian crochet, which I made up as I went along, though I used a cross stitch flower pattern from the internet. I was pleased that it won the trophy because there was more competition in this section than in the tatting.
My Schwalm embroidery came 2nd in the beginner section. It won't go forward to the national competition as the other articles will. There is a big VLV conference in Upington in August when work from all over South Africa will be judged.
