I won a Judge’s Merit at the National Patchwork Championships at Sandown (Esher, UK) this weekend! I just went this afternoon to collect it, but didn’t know if I had been given anything. They only phone you if it is a first.
It is “Sky Princess”…or what she might wear. I was thinking of the sun reflecting in coppery edges on clouds. The fastenings are copper washers. The outside of the coat was made from metallic silk tissue.
I had entered it into another show a few years ago but was never happy with the fact that I ran out of time to make all the clouds she really needed. SO, I am pleased it is not hanging on the cupboard in my room and more than pleased that someone liked it!
