Getting this annual post up earlier than last year! (Technically, this year!)

2018 Annapolis Valley Exhibition

Cross Stitch

As I stated in the last exhibition post, in all of 2017 I think I stitched 5 days for maybe 4 hours. Pitiful. The least amount of stitching I’ve done since I started stitching 30 years ago! I didn’t even start off 2018 very well. I managed to get two pieces done before Exhibition, but only one that I could show, plus an ornament.  Even that was thanks only to starting to stream on Twitch.

First Place – 11 or 14ct Aida – $4.50 – “Waterside Mill”

First Place – Christmas Ornament (Needlwork) – $4.50 – “Nesting Bird”

This year I’ve been experimenting with watercolour (and, soon, mixed media). I played around with some paint and paper and some wooden discs that I bought for a different experiment that I didn’t like. I actually had a few pieces that weren’t too bad. As there are no entry fees for the exhibition, I figured it couldn’t hurt to submit some and one actually won something!

Third place – Miniature Watercolour – $2.70 – “Pansy”


Two of my three photography entries placed. As usual, I pulled my entries not from my most recent shoots, but from the previous calendar year.

Second Place – Digitally Altered – $5.40 – “Sacre-Coeur Basilica”

Second Place – Portrait – $5.40 – “Shooting at Peggy’s Cove”
