... Red text ... because Swiss Granny_59 scored another FIRST at a Canadian Fair!!!!!
(for the previous story, see this thread ... Swiss Granny_59 impresses Canadian Judges with her "amazing" work!!!
Yes, I took Ayubovan to another Fair on Thanksgiving weekend. I really hesitated about it, as there were no classes that it really "fit" into. There was a "wall hanging quilt" class which allowed large art quilts for entries ... yes it hangs on the wall, but against large quilts, I wasn't sure made sense. Then there was "applique, quilt" class, which included full bed size quilts. Again, I feared a disqualification because of it's miniature stature.
When I arrived, I asked the Convenors and showed the Mighty Mini with the 1/4" sashing and 3/4" dresden blades .... they became breathless and lost for words (and hard to believe that with these women!!). We discussed the pros and cons of entering in either class. Alas! we all agreed that it was "applique" ... so up against the BIG guys it went!!! Can you imagine the faces of many when they saw it win over the larger quilts?
A well deserved win, for sure!!!!!
So Congratulations Granny_59!!!!! ... you bask in the glory you so much deserve. It is such an honour for me to have shown this beauty, and to be the proud owner, too. I only wish you could have been here to enjoy it IRL!!
(and for any who wonder ... both times, I have entered it in Granny_59's name and country)
As an added thrill ... when I walked into the show hall, it was set right next to a runner that I had shown, and won a Red with as well!
