So this weekend was our local Fair.
Hubby had to be there to run a booth for the YouthPark.
We went as a family for 2 hours on Saturday. The Kids did some rides , we had some fair food and looked at the crafts.
I got to see the results of my entries:
1st Place for my Picovoli
2nd for my baby sweater (not blogged as it was a test knit and is a gift)
2nd for my Forest Canopy Shawl (1st place went to a fellow guild member who made an amazing Faroese Shawl out of Mohair/Silk)
1st place for my bread
and my socks got "Honorable Mention"--apparently I forgot to weave in a couple of ends inside--oops.
I spun at the Fair Sunday afternoon from 12:30pm-5pm and got to have some greasy food (onion chips and a chocolate milkshake for lunch--yum), bought some Lavender Tea and linen spray from a local vendor and got my Candy Apple (I always have to have a Candy Apple every year from the fair)
I was wiped when we got home, took a short nap while listening to Lime and Violet and woke up when they said my name.
If you download Ep 70--you will hear MissViolet talk about me dancing at the hospital (yes, I did that) and they talk about my store.
Oh and there will be a youtube video of me dancing--sometime in the near future :)
Shownotes are here.
I have to go back and listen to the rest of the episode, for the stuff I missed.
EDITED TO ADD: Here is the video:
Hubby and I are going out to a fancy dinner tonight in honour of the RCMP ride coming to town.
It's part of the YouthPark project as well--so we get to be VIP's.
I miss the actual performance tomorrow as I have my first rehearsal for Annie.
I am very excited to be part of this play.
So..I have to figure out what to wear tonight and spiffen up the house (is that a word??).
