To everyone who encouraged, supported, donated fabric, wrote haiku and put up with me whinging — THANK YOU!
Worldwide Friends has won First Prize in its category and Best Exhibit of Show.
I’m totally stoked (if you’re not Australian, this translates as delighted, thrilled, very happy, chuffed and gratified). Can you tell?
To all the Worldwide Friends: I couldn’t have done it without you.

The most remarkable outcome is that the Judging Team have asked me if I will please attend their next sewing group day on Wednesday next week, bringing the quilt with me to give a talk on how it came to be, how I made it, etc. And would I please like to join them every week after that….?
The Husband thinks it’s hysterically funny that when I first turned the corner and saw the quilt and its ribbons, the first word out of my mouth was a rude one. Not a very, very rude one, but not ladylike, nonetheless!
PS: we’re keeping blue ribbons in the family. Auntie Marion’s tatting took First Prize as well!
