Day 12 - Blogtoberfest

One of the things I wanted to do after I first (semi) retired, was to enter craft work in the local show. I thought that it would be a good way to give myself a deadline to finish something, since I am the world's worst procrastinator. I didn't do anything for the 2011 show because of my trip to France, but I did have some things in the 2009 & 2010 shows. I didn't win anything but I have had a couple of Highly Commendeds. The pumpkin hanging was one of them.

This cross stitch was in last year's show; I was up against some very stiff competition in a very popular category and of course didn't get anywhere. Not that I was expecting to, I was just glad to get it out of the cupboard and in a frame. I was thinking the other day that if I want to enter this category next show (in May) I had better make a start. I have two kits to do- both bought on trips to the UK. One is of 'The Shambles' in York and one is of Jane Austen's house in Chawton.

Which one???


  1. Both of your entries are gorgeous,I love the pumpkin wall hanging and the cross stitch tea cup is beautiful.

  2. The Shambles. Not enough Zombies in the other one.
