I judged the Cotton Creations - garments made, sometimes designed and modelled by young people from age 7 to about 16. As usual I was absolutely blown away by the skill and imagination of the kids. That for me entailed examining the clothes on Thursday afternoon then attending the Wine and Cheese Evening and fashion parade later that night. We were treated to all sorts of cheeses and dairy products as well as wines from the local area. All the winners of the Dairy Sections recieved their prizes on the stage, with the backdrop of Linda's lovely quilt and some classic Australiana.
The kids strutted their stuff across the stage which was made festive by two gorgeous quilts entered in the Show by students in my classes.
Friday is the big Show Day here and I went down with my daughter and her friend to mill around with the crowds. Actually, it was a quiet day with me have coffee and a wine- tasting with my friends and Amelia exploring side show alley with hers. Unfortunately I forgot my camera so you don't get to see the impressive line-up of cattle ready for the Grand Parade, that welcomed me in! Or the Rides, side shows or anything else. I took some photos on my phone but they weren't so good.
flopping about all weekend... so I missed Collectorama ( fantastic collectibles market where I get old embroideries etc) and the Textile Show in Brisbane.
Hope you're all having a good weekend,
