Show time is over for another year.

All the fun of the fair!!
Hello to you all.....the show is over for another year and jeepers it was fun. Though I was a bit annoyed at myself for not entering more work, I came out pretty competitive and won many sections. 1st, 2nd and third placings have made me happy. This is my stash...

This little mug rug will now be sold at the tourist centre after a 3rd placing. It is a sweet little gift for someone.
 Of course, my two coat hangers were just super fun to knit and you will be interested to know that these knitted coat hangers out did 2 coat hangers knitted with lace, bling and beads. I’m over the moon...bling doesn’t always win.
 I’m over the moon about my bootees winning 1st prize in the bootee section. Even though my bootees won the section, Miss Heather won 2 placings in this section....2nd and 3rd! She’s a clever monkey.
 Lol....the judge didn’t like my critter at all. Look at that face??? Oh....I see. Lol. She was entered in the recycled useful item section. I love her. She's made from an old hessian bag, the nose is stuffed with a golf ball, and the body stuffed with old cushion stuffing.
 The grandest item I made for the show.......
I am very pleased with this set, I loved knitting it, loved the yarn (2 ply merino & silk). This is the project that was on my knitting needles when it was sold already.
 
A show is not a show without chooks. My 3 distinct items drew a placing as well, 
I’ve run out of petrol I’m afraid......I think now after this weekend I need to rest. I had such a great weekend catching up with my Northam Ag. Society mates, pulling pranks on anyone of them and copping it back. A great bunch of hard working people that I consider my family, it was such a pleasure to share the weekend with you. It’s cuppa time now.
Ciao, Anita.
