I had been planning on entering my Portuguese Whitework tablecloth in the Arts and Crafts section of next year’s Sydney Royal Easter Show. It is the embroidery that I have been most proud of in a very long time, and therefore wanted to show it off and see how it went in open competition.
The schedule for the competition was released last week, and on reading it, I had a very terrible realisation: the show is on at exactly the same time that I will be at Beating Around the Bush in Adelaide. The plan is that I will have the book for sale there, and will have a big display of projects from the book at the Village Fair market day. My tablecloth can’t be in two places at once!
I guess that if I could take some REALLY REALLY REALLY good pictures of the tablecloth I could have them enlarged and on display at BATB, and the tablecloth at the Royal Easter Show. But the tablecloth is so absolutely stunning that I’d really love for people to be able to see it in person…
The first thing would be to work on getting some good photos, and then decide.
