It was well attended and there was a Jazz band to liven up the proceedings (hope noone's averse to churchyards!):
The point of these shows is for people to enter their home grown produce, flowers, baking, handicrafts in various categories and to receive a cup or plaque for those judged to be the best. In many villages these prizes are hard fought and the whole thing is taken very seriously. There are classes for the children to enter too and it was great to see their enthusiasm and pleasure when they went up to claim their prizes at the end of the day.
If you look closely in the background of the photo above you should see a quilt which I have blown up: (not literally)
I am ashamed to say that I didn't notice the quilt till I looked at the photo so I can't describe it in any detail!
When we got home I found an envelope of mixed media postcards waiting for me. Unfortunately I only managed to photograph one before my batteries ran out and I haven't got any charged up at the moment so I will post the others in a day or two. This beautiful card is by Linda and has a lovely piece of embellished fibres with threads and a skeletal leaf together with star patterned paper. The postcard was to be made using one colour only. I don't usually work in red so it's nice to own something in this gorgeous colour.
