Some Winnings

I entered 19 items in the local A&P show this year, the most I have ever done and came out with seven placings.... four 1sts, two 2nds and a 3rd.

 I got 1st placings with my Tomato Relish which is from the handy Edmonds Cookbook and this year entered some Pesto too and I found this recipe online.

I also entered my Christmas stitchery that I had just finished which is C\called 'Jolly Santa' by Natalie Bird at The Birdhouse.  I picked this kit up at JJ Crafts when visiting there a couple of years ago.

I also made this table topper and again got a first.  The free tutorial I found was from Sister Of The Divide and called the Candy Corn Table Topper.  I was simple to make and I learnt how to do mitered corners on a hexagon finally.

I entered this oven mitt last year and got nowhere so was able to enter it again this year and it got 2nd ....yay!

This cross stitch that I got 2nd for was one I had done a while ago and reframed recently.  There were some lovely pieces on display this year.

I also made a stitchery that had been sitting in a box for a while into a cushion and this came 3rd

There were others I had entered and came nowhere this year and if I don't use them I may enter them again next year.

One was this beanie

And a bag made from French General fabric using a pattern I found on Pinterest and the pattern can be found here

For the first time I entered some baking but alas did not get anywhere this time but will keep on trying.
