I enter things in the local show. Things I have sewn. Every year. For about 6 or 7 years now. I started entering items because I was bored witless as a SAHM and needed a goal with a deadline to motivate me. I no longer need a goal to motivate me but I like to enter something all the same. Probably because I never recived many prizes when I was younger.
The last few years I have been entering in the Natural Fibres Creations competition. You enter through the local show and then there is a state final held at the Ekka if your entry comes first or second.
This year my daywear entry (trench coat, shirt and pants) came in second. I am thrilled to say the least. My aim for this year and future years is to only enter garments that I will actually wear - so that genereally rules out the evening wear and creative clothing categories and makes the daywear category a little more restrictive since I am not doing fun racewear.
I am only a little cranky that the Lord Mayor called me Murray. That totally sent me back to high school.
