Mailart received

Today the Ingrid's mailart landed in the mailbox. It is very beautiful, so much work done. I'm very glad with it. She inserted some skeins of thread and a card from Bruges, the town in het neighbourhood.
I didn't manage to stitch on my duckling. After the crossbow training on saturday our president asked if I wanted to compete the next day. So we went and there was a special competition added to the normal one. We had to aim for a very small target, when you hit it, you have a 'king's shot', very difficult to get. I really had a lucky shot as I hit it. In the evening the people who hit the target had to compete against each other, the winner would be crowned King for the year. Only 2 out of 47 shooters had a hit. Together with the king of last year we competed. After 4 rounds an older man won. I think he was in his seventies, a long carrier of shooting, so I think he deserved it. And I'm very happy to stay the courtjester :))) It was only the 3nd competition I did, I only started shooting end of January, so it really was a lucky shot! After all, a blind pig finds an acorn once in a while too!
Yesterday was so nice weather, I was out with Kwispel after work and was very tired in the evening. I hope to stitch today and finish tomorrow the duckling.
