After 20 years of entering the handicraft secti0n of Otley Show, I’ve finally done it!…I’ve won the cup! I’m chuffed to bits:-)
The Eric Walton cup is awarded to the person with the most points in the handicraft section. I had a new tactic this year, rather than entering one item in every class I entered two or three where possible!! I entered 16 items this year in six different classes. I actually only won with five things, I’ve won more before, but this year it was enough to win the cup!!
I won first prize for my Butterfly Garden cross-stitch and a beaded necklace , second prize for one of the padded coat-hangers and the Scottie dog, third prize for the Indian Mosaic.
Of course I’ll have to defend my title next year….!
