>What a day I’ve had! I was told this morning that I am joint winner of the Graduate Showcase bursary at the Festival of Quilts. I’m absolutely thrilled! I share the prize with Rose Wood and we both went to the presentation event this afternoon (hosted by Kaffe Fassett) where we were given a cup of tea (very welcome by that point in the day!) and our certificates by Pauline Burbidge, who selected us both at New Designers and here. We both get a chunk of money to spend furthering our work and a space at next year’s show.

I also met Claire Benn and Janice Gunner today, who both bought pieces of my work. I’ve had so many lovely comments and conversations today, I’m surprised I got my head out the door at the close of show! Excuse me while I just go and pinch myself…
