The results from the Ilkley Flower Show are in and everyone’s a winner! Hubby won a first with his winter scene photo and our daughter won the ‘something red’ class beating all the adults.
Not only did she win her class she won the Calder Plate for the best photo / painting in the show. Not bad for a twelve year old. Hubby managed a third on something red and I was nowhere to be seen. But, I did win a first for my cushion in the ‘something new from something old’ class which means I also won the Inspiration Cup. Two lots of silver in the family. As I only finished the cushion on Thursday this is the first time you’ll have seen the photos.
Everything except the yarn covering the seams was recycled. Hubby won second with his bird box and I won second with my cheese scones. Our daughter won a second for her CD cover, third for ‘my best friend’ photo, model from waste material’ and decorated biscuits. What a day. So despite the upset with the cake we came away very pleased and good humour was definitely restored. I think we may have a go next year too.
