FNWF and A First Prize!

Friday night Noel and I went down to my Mum and Dad's to have fish and chips for tea. The shop near them has the best fish and chips. We've been going there for nearly 40 years and it's still the same man running it with his family!
 
My plan was to work on my Christmas stitchery while there but I 
left my glasses at home! Hence, no stitching was done!
So I joined the ladies in the Northern Hemisphere on Saturday and stitched 
along with them while binge watching Alias Grace on Netflix. 
This project is slowly coming along.
 Thanks to Chez at Gone Stitchin' for being such a lovely hostess.
 Today, Noel, Nelson and I went to the Whittlesea Agricultural Show. I had entered my Double Wedding ring quilt and got such a surprise to see I had won first prize. Over all the years I have entered quilts, this is the first time I have ever got a first. I've had many 2nd and 3rd prizes. So, needless to say, I was very excited!
