Unfortunately, there wasn't a "Highly Commended" certificate to be given, but this little beauty probably wouldn't have stood a chance anyway! It escaped with a score of 14/20, and I received the comments "A very good attempt - a paper insert would add to finish and presentation"! So I forgot!!!! OK???? LOL!I also entered one of my watercolours in the Painting category and came away with Second prize (50p!) and the comment "Excellent detail - well mounted. A little more care needed to avoid prencil showing" and it received a score of 17/20!
I must admit, I was extremely pleased with this because I've never shown any of my watercolours off anywhere, though having said that, it's a few years since I actually did any! tut!
All in all it turned out to be a great day! And on top of all that, ecstatic with my winnings (£1.25 for those who've not been keeping a running total!! LOL!) I found myself signing up to join the committee, and my first gesture was to donate my winnings to the Village Hall Fund (though God knows I need it more than they do!!! LOL!)
Thanks for dropping in - as always your lovely comments are very much appreciated! :o)
