…….well at least it was yesterday but I spent most of the week preparing for it. My house looks like a bomb has gone off in it, we haven’t eaten a decent meal in days and I can’t see the floor for the pile of washing! But after all of the late nights (actually early mornings 1am’s), long long days, and hard work, Show day finally arrived. To open up the Homecraft Pavilion and see all of the lovely flowers, produce, cookery and handcrafts on display, and watch the joy on everyone's face as they look at the exhibits, somehow made the pain and tiredness just disappear. The highlight of my day was to see Katherine - a young lady of 14 – win her first 1st prize for her Chocolate Cake. She travels from Melbourne (she has a relative who lives locally) and this year was the fourth time she entered the class. I remember her first effort – not at all successful, but she has improved over the years. Her mother informed me that every time something ‘happens’ at school she bakes a chocolate cake for it. Ahhhh chocolate cake…..the only way to celebrate!
It’s almost March……..in about 5 hours……..and that means a new Pattern of the Month. I’ll be back tomorrow with more details.
