It was show day in our world today. This year in addition to eyeing off the poultry, farm animals and horses, I was excited to enter some items in the homecrafts pavilion. Several pictures, so I'll let them do the talking....
Proud as I am over my multicoloured calendulas, I notice the second and first place calendula entries are both a uniform colour......
|Eggs, half dozen - Second prize|
|Eggs - any other colour -Second prize.|
Blue eggs from Violet, our Araucana. Thanks, Violet!
|Calendula - Third prize.|
|Yes, that would be the 7y.o's hand sneaking a touch..|
|Relish, not tomato - 1st prize (Zucchini Relish). Well done, yellow zucchinis, will be growing you again this year!|
|Lemon Butter - Third prize. Quite a number of lemon butter entries this year. Still using my favourite recipe.|
|Pickles, any variety - Third prize (Bread & Butter Cucumbers)|
|Berry jam, any other variety (not strawberry or raspberry) - Second prize ( (Blackberry Jam)|
My daughters also did some baking and did not go away disappointed.....
|3 pikelets - First prize to the 8yo. There they are, down on the bottom right. Recipe from Lady Flo Bjelke-Petersen's cookbook|
|Decorated cake, 7-10 years. First prize to the 10 yo! I'm very proud and she's super pleased!!|
I couldn't resist admiring all of the handiwork on our way out. Some inspiring quilts....
....plus knitting and crochet too!
Much, much fun.
