We arrived just in time for the speeches and award presentations. Congratulations to the winners. I didn't note their names down and they are not on the website yet, so will have to let you know who they were later. There was a very pleasant buzz from the crowd, all excited to be there to see the works and enjoy the enthusiasm.
The works were presented beautifully and the room had lovely lighting.
I can't believe it, I forgot to take a picture of my own work. Oh well, that was because I met a lady who did the distance education course that I did last year through SWTAFE, the machine embroidery course. We got chatting and comparing notes about the course and what we are doing now and I simply forgot. But I did get a photo of her work.
I have included a photo from inside the house to show what I assume was the inspiration for the base of her lamp - it seemed like a good connection to me, anyway.

I also met a lady from the AusNZ tapestry online group. She had done a tapestry, of course! It is good to meet people you know vaguely through the internet, in person.
last time I visited Buda and I got a couple of pictures of pieces I hadn't had a chance to photograph last time. I especially liked this lamp.
