I'm Miles and I am nine years old. I really like your show so I was wondering if I could get the blue badge. Even though I am a boy I am into embroidery (stitching). I go to a club called JETS (Junior Embroiderers and Textile Students - which my grandma takes me to the first Saturday of every month. I have been doing it for at least two years now and I have got very good at it. I have made a bug, a coat of arms and also I am halfway through a house.

Here are some examples of my work:

I have included a copy of the certificate I got from the Regional Competition. I hope this is enough to get the blue badge.

P.S. don't tell Radzi but Lindsey is my favourite!
