Lana is most outstanding!As promised, here are some of the articles we entered into the Berry show. This tapestry category is "article in petit point". This means a picture stitched on very fine material. Lana finished the horse before we left for the US, and it looked like a horse Lana's family owned when she was a teenager.
Lana won the "Most Outstanding Exhibit - Tapestry". (Cheers from the crowd!)
When we picked up our exhibits after the show there was a note from an admirer asking Lana to give him a call to either buy or commission another one of this work.
Click for an even closer look I don't think he realises the cost it will be. If we calculate the hours times a reasonable hourly rate the value is quite a lot. Very few are willing to pay this much.
The pattern is from the designer Graeme Ross.
A Rose in a Tea GardenThis Rose is from the Tea Garden set by Lavender and Lace. This won second prize, meaning Lana scooped the competition.
