What a coincidence that this topic is today. The OH dropped two items off at the Royal Adelaide Show early this morning (he left here at 5.30am), which he’d entered in the blacksmithing classes. One of which was a hand forged table. He couldn’t stay for the judging and his items were the first to be dropped off, so he didn’t get to check out the competition either.
We just received a phone call a short while ago from the in-law’s. Seems there’s a red ribbon on the table – a 2nd place and a blue ribbon on the hand forged gate, which was entered under the ‘traditional’ category.
To say he’s excited is an understatment. He’s worked hard at honing his skills and it’s great to have validation and such commendation from his peers.
