Many crafters are thinking about Christmas already. I’m afraid to say I’ve only got as far as thinking about it. It’s just too hard to think about making Christmas cards, when we’ve finally got some warm weather! I have made a decision to make some owl cards this Christmas, not sure how they will look in Christmas papers, but there’s only one way to find out!
So while I’m supposed to be busy making all my Christmas cards, I’ve actually been making my entries for the 72nd Bury Agricultural Show. I think I’m only going to be entering two classes this year. As I was awarded first prize in the card class last year, I have a tough act to follow. I’ve made one card already, and have an idea for another, both quite different for me, so fingers crossed!
I’m also working on something for the knitted / crochet class. This year it’s an item for a baby or toddler. I haven’t placed in this section before as the standard is always high, usually won by an incredibly intricate item of clothing. However, this year I’m going to try and show my knitting skills with lots of different stitches. I might enter one of my crochet baby comforters too, depending on how I feel on the day!
I shall post some pictures when everything is completed and the judging done. Here’s hoping for some more places this year.
