2011 marked the 160th anniversary of the Ilderton Fall Fair. To my thinking, such a monumental occasion deserved equal monumental input from me! So what did I do? I entered a whopping 20 items in two categories! The "homecraft/knitting" division received 14 knitted items, and the "food department" received six goodies.
This morning Barb and I shuffled through the Ilderton Fair's exhibit buildings expressing the appropriate oohs and aahs. We put on brave faces, but it was very c-c-c-cold! Under the main exhibit building is an ice arena! Brrrrr...
My cold and red hands could barely hold the camera steady to take photos. My hot breath warmed my fingers enough to take the necessary 13 pictures! I won 15 ribbons in total - 9 x 1sts; 5 x 2nds; and 1 x 3rd!! Whoot!
