I had the privilege of being in the top three finalists for the Sew&So National Needlecraft Awards: "Needlecrafter of the Year".
It was very exciting to be invited to the ceremony at the 2018 Spring Knitting & Stitching Show, and to see my blackwork of a CrossFitter "80 kilos" displayed among the other finalists in 8 categories. My beloved Andrew came along to cheer (and for the free prosecco!) as I waited a tad nervously for the results.
I would like to congratulate the very worthy winners this year, and to promise I'll give you a good run for your money next time!
