Places to eat were in abundance! And the choices plentiful from sea food to hot dogs and lots of meat being grilled for sandwiches and fresh lemonade! There was live music and of course a huge Ferris wheel and other adventurous rides.
We went into the fine arts building to see the paintings and photography.
We found that a good teacher friend of DH's had entered and won on her blue watercolor on the far right top row below.
I was pleased to see that the two watercolors I had entered into the novice category (painting five years or less/for me it's much less) both won prizes: a 2nd and a 3rd prize ribbon!
They can be seen in the second row below left and middle.
The red flower third row first photo won first prize in my category.
There was lots of very good photography. Some I felt deserved ribbons did not have any like the elder hands third row middle! And then there was wearable art.
That first row middle paper dress was very very cute and well constructed.
And in the second row first photo on the left is a pendant like
the ones Mim makes!!
There was no art quilt category. So I was in competition with the quilts you see here below. The only one that I would consider an art quilt is in the first photo top left
with the blue first place ribbon. It was lovely.
It was fun to see them all hanging so proudly! &&& And here are some more traditional quilts that were note worthy Chickens rop left are for you Cris...
