Duncan won third prize in his class "Decorate an Egg" contest.
His entry again...
(For these who have asked...the actual egg is under the white yarn. The head and limbs are needlefelted balls of scrap fibre.)
Was he pleased with third prize? No he was not. Firstly he wanted to get his hands on one of the big chocolate eggs that were first and second prize, but also he was most indignant about the winning entry. Apparently it was also a sheep made from yarn glued to an egg but...get this...he says it was shop bought acrylic yarn. He could tell the difference, he said, and he thought the judges were very stupid not to have realised his sheep egg was made from real fleece.
I may buy the boy a chocolate egg just for that.
