We had a village produce show last Sunday. This is actually in the next village because our own village is too small to host an event such as this.
I am not green fingered enough to tend lovingly to vegetables so I didn't enter the veg section and my garden is not big enough to grow enough flowers for cutting so I didn't enter the flower section and I can't bake too many things at the same time so I didn't enter the cookery section either. Was that enough excuse ? Which left the craft section. Now, I can't not enter the craft section, can I ?
Luckily I did, I came second in the craft section. My photographs didn't do as well as I thought, I think the judges preferred "snaps". Only one photograph won out of the six I entered and on top of that, one of my card came second and my minibook about Chelsea Flower Show came third.
My card was hand-drawn and painted with watercolour. When dry, I added stickle to the umbrella. Unfortunately the stickle just looks messy in the photo above.
The children produced some excellent work. H came second in the U16 section.
