She started making gifts for everyone in the family, and we all loved that! One of her recent projects was a sweater for niece Macy. She was still working on it, so decided to enter it in the County Fair, which was a good motivation to get it done. This is what she came up with... a design of her own, with the colors picked out by Macy's mom.
We went to the fair on opening day, as we were all exited to see what she had won (we never doubted she would win something!
This sweater won a first place ribbon...
and this one won 2nd place. We were kind of surprised, as we thought the bigger one would do better, but actually it had a lot more competition in it's category. She also won a 2nd place on her potholders. She was pleased, and we were so proud of her. It's a great start for many good things to come, and we can't wait to see Macy in her sweater.
Another highlight was finding these day old bunnies. There are six of them wedged in there, and they were so cute. I noticed the owner had mixed some mama rabbit fur in with the sawdust, which must have felt and smelled like 'home'.
And here is mama herself, keeping a close eye on us as we enjoyed her little offspring.
Fairs are always so much fun, and we finished off the day with a wonderful Eberhart Dairy ice cream cone. Success in every way!
