Our goats milk soap received 1st in several departments.
Our woodworking bridle holders did well.
And our drawings did good also. I have had a renewed interest in drawing the past year and just may have to add some good drawing books to our school curriculum wish list.
My checkerboard placed first again.
There wasn't too much to enter as far as veggies went but we did manage to find enough plums, crab apples and green tomatoes to fill our entry forms.
We also entered our slim pickin's alfalfa and received good marks. And drum roll please..... I entered 3 kinds of goats milk cheese and my Garlic Pepper with Parsley Hard Cheese won a Grand Champion! I am still smiling from ear to ear and will have to place my ribbon right next to all of Rob's cheese trophies!
I entered 2 little quilts. Micah's frog quilt received first place which tickled me pink because it's hard to get a first in the quilting department. My tear-my-hair-out crazy quilt received third place. They always get me on my binding corners and I realized too late that I sewed the corners wrong on the binding and just did not have the heart to tear it all out by the time I noticed. So I was content to take third.
I think she's just too cute!
I saw this pattern quite some time ago in a quilting book and have wanted to make it ever since. The Fair is a good reason to challenge yourself into making a quilt with 1" finished squares and a gazillion triangles.
It was worth it.
