That's the theme of our county fair this year.
Kind of cute.
We won't be decorating our booth with pigs.
The day of reckoning has come. 4-H interviews are today. Last year, the kids each did 5 projects. That was a mistake. The paperwork alone took over a week, I'm not kidding. So this year, I couldn't even think about 4-H until February. Yes, now I'm regretting that they didn't tackle more (Lizzie didn't do sewing :-( ), but I'm sane and they are pleasant to be around. Both girls did a Quilting project.
Here's Lizzie's Dresden Plate, quilted & bound by her! She figured out the corners by looking at another quilt.
The pattern is from Egg Money -- Dresden Plate. Fabric is Rainy Days & Mondays.
Here's Bella's baby blanket.
Sunday Best ~ Schnibbles pattern and with a variety of pretty prints.
She wanted flannel on the back.
Aunt Desi did the quilting on both of them. Thank you!
Bella bound her's too.
He wanted to raise a sheep (so did Lizzie).
I just couldn't tackle that this year. I am not a farm animal person. Maybe next year.
So he did a 4-H cooking project with a friend.
He's a good sport. And a good cook.
They did a comparison on homemade brownies versus Betty Crocker. Compared the taste, texture and cost. I was surprised, I thought the lesson was going to teach that homemade is cheaper, but it wasn't. The homemade were more expensive & didn't taste as good, but they cut nicely.
I tried to be helpful by sampling all of the food projects.
My work is done.
