John and I had quite a discussion about these quilt blocks - I said they were new, John thought he had seen them before. Anyone got the answer? Whichever, they were great.
Toured the Floral Hall first and look what was on the table as you went in. Loved it. All those rusty nails from an old nail gun really were put to good use.
Our very own Sara did a terrific job in the scarecrow division. Love her trike - Hens and Chicks, and the scarecrow too. Though I don't think he would scare too many - he's too darn cute.
Stacie did pretty good in the ceramic class.
And of course the floral part was great to see. Members new and old, grandchildren of current and old members - Wonderful treat. Heard from some that it was difficult as many got caught up in the rain storm and lost some of their prettiest.
Now let's go over to our FAVORITE spot.
I want one!
Isn't this the most fantastic recycled/repurposed thing you ever saw?
Just hope it was a non-workable machine before it got here. hahaha
Winners box was full of members entries.
Congratulations Geri! Finishing it first and then doing such a Grand Champion job.
Congratulations Cindy! Putting her own extra touches on those robot's paid off with this Grand. Lucky GRANDson.
Congratulations Stacie! Try doing something like this on the sly. This was a present for her husband so her working hours on it had to be when there was no chance he would come in.
Seeing it at the show, and with a Grand Champion ribbon, was the unveiling to him.
Congratulations to our grandchildren.
This is from Stacie C's oldest girl - she had to learn to sew right along mom and grandmother. Wonderful job and well on her way to stardom.
Thank you Cindy for sending this shot. Had to add it here. Love the excited look.
Congrats again Tymber!
Took me a bit to locate Sierra's bag that was showed us at Monday's meeting.
Found it! Congratulations again Sierra!
Lot of entries and lots of blue, red and white ribbons.
If you have not had a chance to go down and get a first class look see - you only have Friday and Saturday to do it. Hurry on down before it is too late.
Virginian and Geri had some of their things under glass. So please excuse the roughness of the pictures.
Hayley and Geri's work. When you are talented - you are talented. And many times in more than one type of Textile masterpieces.
Cindy and Carol S. Congratulations!
Congratulations to every one that entered. You can not win (nor get people excited) unless you enter. Makes you want to do a quilt show in a safe and air conditioned building so people could see more of our members work.
Remember, the fair has other things to offer also.
And I don't just mean food (which is good). Went to the swine show Wednesday night and just had to admire the "young cowboys" coming up and the future farmers that were so brave as to show off the pigs that were 4-5 times bigger than them.
Mr. John and I had fun. Sure hope you all get down there and enjoy too. At least this year it is not so hot.
