As you know I’ve been prepping my afghans for the Royal Hobart Show. I submitted both the Sophie’s Universe blanket and the Summer CAL blanket last Friday, and promptly forgot about them. On Wednesday afternoon I received a picture message from my father, who had gone out to the show to look at livestock. He knew that my afghans were there somewhere and he went on a hunt through the pavillions until he found the homecraft section. Not only had my Sophie’s Universe won its section, but it had also won most outstanding exhibit, and was ‘pride of place’ in the Cabinet of Excellence! WOAH. I was in shock. Unfortunately my Summer CAL blanket did not place in its section, but hey, I figure I can live with that since Sophie has cleaned up the best awards in the show! Happy days!
