I am over the moon! I find it a big enough thrill to be displayed at this level of open competition, but to get a ribbon is simply fabulous! This is my first time entering any of my beaded work and even though I was very happy with the piece, I am never sure what others will think of it. In this case, even though it was one of the more unusual pieces entered into the class, it seemed the judge liked it too :-)
It isn’t a place ribbon, but any official recognition at this level is nothing to be sniffed at.
