I went with my friend T to the
Utah State Fair today.
I haven't been to the fair in years.
I was so excited to go to see if
I won a ribbon in the quilt competition.
the animal exhibits/competitions:
We went to see the pigeon displays.
I like birds, and pigeons are birds,
but I usual relate pigeons to messy bird droppings
on my car.
These pigeons were beautiful!
I like this ones curly feathers...so soft!
This one would tip back and it's head would almost disappear.
I got this photo when it leaned forward again-instant umbrella!
This one had it own high collar-very pretty!
The sheep had just begun to be delivered from the farms...very noisy!
All the piggies were asleep...some were snoring!
We moved onto the home and creative arts buildings.
This is my froggy quilt! The official title is
"Hopping in the Big Pond of Life"
The picture is not the greatest, but I did win....
3rd place in the
Advanced quilter-small quilt division.
I was pretty excited!
Other displays were hand dyed yarns, which were absolutely beautiful, plus
Costuming...didn't know about this sewing division.
Maybe I'll enter that division next year!
One last close up photo of one of my frog blocks!
I had a wonderful day-
walked about 5 miles-
ate part of a funnel cake, some apple chips
(with caramel, of course) and a large Taco salad!
It was a lovely day!
