Cup Winner!

Do you remember earlier in the summer when I said that my Mother-in-Law had suggested I enter our Village Fête competition with one of my doilies?

Well, I was away for the Fête so didn't get to see my entry amongst the others but I was delighted upon my return to learn that not only had I won first prize in my category, but was also awarded the Rose Bowl which is for The Best Exhibit in the Overall Domestic Section!  I even get to have my name engraved on the cup.

I'm chuffed.

I may even have to enter again next year....

Well, someone needs to promote the merits of tatting in my neck of the woods!

Best wishes,


  1. Well done, a beautiful doily deserved to win.

  2. Well done! Congratulations!!!
    Fox : ))

  3. Félicitations!!! Of course you won- this is staggeringly beautiful!

  4. Congratulations! Your doily is gorgeous, and what a wonderful way to promote tatting in your community. Yay!

  5. congratulations and well done!! Your doily is gorgeous!

  6. Congratulations! Very well deserved! :)

  7. You have every right to be chuffed Frivole! This doily is stunning!

  8. Congratulations! The rose bowl is fabulous... such a wonderful prize!

  9. Of course, I HAD to comment on this MAGNIFICENT WORK OF ART!! A fabulous representation of tatting! It just takes my breath away!

    And it seems you tatted this fairly quickly also! The beautiful combination of thread colors is outstanding!

    It's displayed here on what appears to be a fabric-covered board, which really shows it off. Did you have to attach it in some way?

    It definitely deserves that beautiful cup! I'm so glad the judges realized what was involved here!


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment, it's always appreciated!
