Lucky, huh? All those people who say they never win anything are entering the wrong competitions.
First prize were these little off-cuts of fabric with the most beautiful swiss images hand-embroidered onto them. The fabric is very light and I see the tiniest hint of a dart in a bit of it, so I reckon it could have been a nightie originally, or maybe a blouse.
The embroidery is so incredibly fine; each image is only a couple of inches tall and some of the stitching is tiny. There's a little voice inside which is saying it could have been part of someone's trousseau, so much time and effort has gone into it. I wonder.
|My little sis gave me this edelweiss braid for Christmas. She knows me so well. It came all the way from the US of A.|
I have plans for all of it.
Next win, the lottery?
That's one of my favourite questions, to find out what people would do if they won the lottery. I love to hear about people's dreams.
Me, I'd sort out some things for my family then go off travelling. So many places I would love to see while I am still in good health and before 21st century globalism ruins all the remote places and ways of life. So many fascinating people to encounter and so many lessons to learn.
If it's not too nosey a question, what would you do if you won the lottery?
