Last year I made this piece for a competition run by Auckland Council. It was to illustrate what made up a thriving community. This is a walking school bus. I was called today to tell me I had won the runner up prize and that this piece would be used to illustrate the report on Thriving communities when it is printed. The lady I spoke to told me the other entries were painting or drawing so that one up for stitch! I have won $300 which will buy me my gold Dr. Martens! Just what every embroiderer needs!
