Winner of The Royal Dublin Society National Craft Competition in three cathegories

Hello All,

I am just back from Dublin where in the RDS a prize giving award has taken place today on the 27th of July. I have won a 2nd Prize in Feltmaking Category, A prize for RDS New Entrant and a special prize founded by Feltmakers Ireland! The ladies from feltmakers association were joking that now I will have to give back to the association in a form of editing of the newsletter and free workshops! I am gonna be busy then!

My application to RDS National Craft Competition, consisted of lace dress made from cut out felt, and Weaver's Wrap, a scarf that was inspired by my dress bought from Casch, by Gro Abrahammson. Here is the dress that ispired

here is the wrap

The second entry gave me the most awards, it was a tightly fitting lace dress.  Here on the side, shame I have no proper official photograph of it!

With the prizes came a sum of money which was very generous and nice of the organizers!
There is more photographs here:
