just a tad excited...........

we've had our local show...........from a young child I have always liked to enter art, craft, flowers into the show.............this year I  put some sewing and photography in................it's great to support the local shows (agriculture shows).............nothing else like them in country towns...............
I got quite a few 1st and 2nd's in various areas..........
anyway look what I got......................
on my Gardener's Journal..............I am so excited.....................
and if that wasn't enough you get points for places and champions etc and they do a tally for the whole pavillion and guess who won the Champion Exhibitor..................ta da.......
and not to be out done.............Fairy Girl had some sewing, a necklaces, photos and cooking in and she won the Junior Champion Exhibitor in the pavillion too.............
I have 3 finishes to show you that i put in the show but you will have to wait until next week for that............have to get some pics..............busy busy....
......May was the 3rd quietest month I have had in my whole time blogging........
Friday morning i'm off on retreat and Fairy Girl gets to come too for some of the time we are both very excited and she is already planning an entry for next years show........which she is going to work on at the retreat..............
I have nothing organised for retreat yet.....few ideas floating around.........
....off to put new elastic on netball bibs..........is 7.30pm to early to go to bed????
better do the bibs then I will hop into bed........
Catch you later..............

  44. No, 7.30 is a quite respectable time to go to bed in the country..! Congratulations on all your firsts, especially the big ribbon, well done. Country Shows are just the best aren't they, I would always pick country over city, far more interesting....

  53. Well done chooky - that is just fabulous and certainly well deserved. I have had the pleasure of seeing your quilt and it is just lovely. Not only did you inspire everyone else to get stitching, also purchasing Annis books to complete the quilt and giving everyone else a sense of achievement of what they had planned to do for ages. Now you have been well rewarded - congratulations to you - certainly well deserved all round. and of course your daughter must be just chuffed - great to see you supporting the local shows.
