Honour of the Week

Last week I had my annual task of judging the craft section of the Veterans Affairs Short Story,Art,Writing and Craft Awards. This is my fifth year of being judge and it was particularly bittersweet. The group had diminished considerably in the past 12 months and I was saddened to hear many of my favourite entrants had passed away. Next year they will open the competition to children and grandchildren of veterans but it just won't be the same. I was so pleased to see the work of May Brown (well into her 90's and creator of amazing knitted vignettes that are always the highlight of my year)

If you'd like to see past years entrants start here and that will link you all the way back. RAMONA
