Here's the dress a very talented girl made for 4-H this year. (see post below). Last year, she made a wool coat & modeled it in 100 degree heat. She is so out of our league. Let me know if you want a picture of her modeling this, I'll sneak another one.
And of course, every dress needs a matching Barbie cake.
Well, enough of her... Shadowman did well, not sure what he did, I need to look at it again -- the judges liked his leadership report, those are his ribbons.
Lizzie's humanitarian quilt is behind it (she got a blue ribbon) - she made it out of Silly Safari fabric (never showed it on the blog, because we lost the photo card in the middle of our fair fun.) It's really bright & cute.
Miss Bella did all right too with her Mary Engelbreit fabric quilt. Both of the girls were judged on their quilt & their History of Quilting reports. Riveting reading.
Today, we'll find out how the girls did on their sewing and how Shadowman did with his flannel Timber Creek quilt. Yesterday, we were turning it in & my machine quilter had used blue pen on it to draw on some of the leaves & it was still there. Oooops, had to run to the bathroom to get it wet, then would get back & find more pen. The fair lady was really nice; she set it out to dry. This is in the midst of us juggling his lego, pottery cereal bowl and candy entries.
