Winner of the Mudthaw Baking Competition

Awarded at Mudthaw 2011

Seems like many moons ago, but I was specifically asked if I would produce an award for this competition and I was happy to oblige.

March 9, 2011: I actually accepted this assignment back last year and have only given it a little thought so far. The words have been kindly written by a close friend and its pretty much ready to be produced. I'm hoping to get it done this coming weekend.

March 19 & 20, 2011: Spent the weekend cranking this scroll out, not that there was vast amounts of persnickety bits. I'm actually very pleased with it as it was the first piece I've completed by prepping the perg. surface with pounce. I'm pleased to anounce that there were no oily spots and the (commercial) paint is firmly attached to the page with no signs of cracking!
