Barrie Fair Week

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

whom.

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

being there.

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.

    I think the movie you mean is “Frozen” and the snowman is Olaf. My granddaughter knows all the words to every song in it. I have watched it more than once with her. Thanks for the pictures from the fair. I didn’t get there this year.
