It has been a long wait to learn who jumps the first hurdle to make the short list for the final judging. Everybody who entered waited for the 15 September 2010 which came and went without any notificiations ... hmmm. After a few days I phoned and was advised that it would be the 31st of October 2010 when the notificiations would go out. 31st October 2010 came and went then finally on 3 November the notifications arrived. 4 of my 9 entries have made it through to the short list. 3 in the Open Divison and 1 in the Creative Challenge Division. Yes this beading bunny is thrilled ... Good luck everybody.
