What did I find at the Easter Show?

Today, my husband and I caught the train and had a day at the Royal Easter Show. We both enjoyed it, but are now home feeling exhausted as it was a rather hot day.

We split up at the Craft pavilion-- he went to see the Homewares and I, needless to say, went to the craft section. I was walking around looking at all the quilts, when I was gobsmacked! There looking at me, with a ribbon on it, was my "Day in the Country" Wallhanging. Not mine, but my pattern made up with my handpainted buttons on it and a ribbon which said "3rd prize". I just stood there staring at it, not quite believing my eyes.

My version of the above wallhanging
Now I am home, I have come back down to earth again. We did lots of walking and saw the animals and the cutest pigs, the woodchopping etc. Now I am exhausted and need to sit with my feet up!
I will do another post this weekend with photos I have taken at the Easter Show.
Have a Happy Easter.

Fantastic, it looks gorgeous! Put your feet up with a cuppa and have a rest. Sounds like a great break.

The wall hanging is beautiful Yvonne.
You must have been over the moon to see that not only had someone made up your design but also won a prize for it as well.
You're very talented. Congratulations!
