My first ever piece of silverware

Just a quick update on my book from yesterday.

I entered it in the Marsters Cup which is an award given by my local embroiderers guild for a piece created at (or coming out of) a guild class. All pieces are anonymous and all members of the guild vote for their favourite.

I am delighted to say that my book won! I have never won anything before, for creative work or for anything else. So to say I am over the moon is an understatement. I have placed the cup in pride of place in my studio and it makes me smile to see it.

It is always lovely to hear that other people like your work!


  1. Your book is really lovely and you are most certainly a very worthy winner. Enjoy.
    I was once a joint winner in our branch with 3 other people so didn't have the cup for very long!
    make the most of it.

  2. I'm not surprised... congratulations!

  3. Cogratulations Sarah. I can't wait to see it in real life it looks wonderful.


Feel free to let me know what you think!
