It was Barrie Fair Week, last week. I call it a “week” because I volunteered there
just about every day, for the whole week. There is alot to do, to organize, set up
and tear down in the HomeCraft Division. As promised, I did take some pictures
for you. I hope you enjoy the eye candy.
Here is “Lily of Rosenberry.” I thought that I would put it in the Fair, to see how
it would show. It won. However, it is easy to win when there are only 3 quilts in
the whole show. I was disappointed that there were not more quilts but we are
hoping to generate more interest for next year. There are alot of amazing
quilters in Simcoe County and I am hoping to get them involved in
exhibiting in the Fair next year.
Phyllis made this cute bunny wallhanging. You have got to love the bunnies.
Phyllis also made this cute wallhanging. She was able to draft the pattern
by looking at a photo. Pretty creative, if you ask me.
This is my “Trillums” wallhanging I made several years ago. Elizabeth
Alexander held classes and I took one with her. I am so glad that I did
because she moved back to Scotland this year. She is a very, very talented
fiber art and quilting lady.
This gorgeous wallhanging was made by Phyllis. I love how the beads look
like frost on the leaves. It is so cool. Phyllis won 1st in the Art Quilt category.
I think she mentioned taking a class for this art quilt but I don’t remember with
Don’t you just love this little mouse? I think he is so cute!
Again, Phyllis made this little guy. She not only quilts but knits and
crochets too. Where does she find all the time to do all 3?
I love this doll! Her shoes were laced up and even the corset
on the back. Another adorable creation by Phyllis.
I am unsure who knit this hat but it got lots of attention at the Fair.
If you are unsure of who he is, he is a character in a recent kid’s movie:
“Frozen.” He is the adorable snowman, Olfa.
I thought that this was a cute centerpiece. The Class said
“decorate an old shoe.”
And who can resist the horses? I had to watch a few horse shows while
Isn’t this drawing just amazing? There is one very talented young lady out
there. Pencil is the medium and the shading is incredible! This will
definitely go on to the next level.
This drawing, of an mommy and baby dragon is cute too. I thought
that the artist is very talented as well.
And who can resist this cute scarecrow? The kids seem to love the
scarecrow division in the Fair.
I am working on some more fabric postcards and hoping to have
more for you next week.
