Nice surprise.


Back in February I wrote about entering the Celebration of Silk competition at Macclesfield Silk Museum. The exhibition is on at the moment, and when I went to see it yesterday I found I had won the second prize!!!

I was given 2 nice books by the curator, about the history of silk in the town and about the museum collection, and I have to go to the Heritage Centre in the town and pick out 4 fat quarters of silk! A very nice surprise. And thank you to Sharon B. for the inspiration of her 100 details series!

Many congratulations Barbara! What a wonderful surprise. You deserve it too, for the work I've seen on your Blog is very good. I shall go along to the exhibition to see for myself.
