What a fun day! Seeing as its summer (supposedly) it's country show season. We went to The New Forest Country Show 3 weeks ago, By-Gone Days last weekend and this weekend, The Ellingham Show. Quite a big show I imagine it to be how the Brisbane Ekka was in the old days. This year as its my local show I decided to get a bit more involved and enter into some of the different comps. So I entered a Dorset Apple Cake, a Lemon Cake, a greetings card, and 7 photos in 4 different categories, architecture, new forest ponies/ donkeys, humour, close up.
3rd for the Dorset Apple Cake, I was pretty happy with this result as it was only the 2nd time I had ever made one and in total I was competing against 12 other apple cakes!
First for my Acrylic Butterfly Cards, spent ages designing this on my robo machine!
The biggest surprise for me though was winning 2 categories in the photography section, completely unexpected and I got quite excited about it. I think I may have even done a happy jump up and down and clapped my hands dance.....Kenny roaring with laughter of course, he was really proud of me...awwwww! :)
I was then approached by the president of the local photography group who when he realised it was me, said he was really impressed with my photos and would be really keen for me to join the group....I was so flattered to be asked and am really looking forward to learning a lot from them.
