‘Tis Jumpers and Jazz in July season. The tree jumpers are installed and the winners have been announced. This week was simply INCREDIBLE for me. On Tuesday I was informed that my entry into the World of Wearableart (WOW) 2013 has made it in to the show. Friday night brought the announcement that my tree jumper entry was named the winner of the Excellence in Knitting/Crochet section for Jumpers and Jazz in July. I can only express my complete and utter shock on hearing my named called. The standard of work this year is absolutely incredible. There are some simply stunning entries. With both my phone and camera batteries both drained, I struggled to capture all the beauty. I did snap two of my faves. Follow the link to the Warwick Daily News tree jumper gallery to see more

Thank you Jumpers and Jazz for filling my heart and confidence with warmth. I am humbled and grateful for the recognition.
I have absolutely NO IDEA what to do for next year. The cogs are turning and I will start work on it in a couple of months…
