Tanunda Country Show, 14 March 2009

Yesterday we spent 6 hours at the Tanunda Show (can't believe the boys behaved themselves soooo well that we could actually stay that long!). It was absolutely fabulous - all the bands, all the acts, everything!

This is only the second show that we entered stuff in (the first was the Angaston Show a fortnight ago, and that was only some colouring pages advertising the show that were in the local newspaper). We were soooooo blown away … we actually won some classes!!!

-- Needlework, any article or technique not previously specified – I put in a huge hot pink and purple shawl I wove … and won 3rd place!

-- Hens Eggs, brown shell – 1st place !!!!!

-- Digital Photo, people – I put in a photo of Blake sleeping … and won 1st place!!! My Father was a professional photographer for over 40 years and I'm sure he was rolling over in his grave, as my photography used to be so bad that it got to a point where he refused to process any more of my films because he was so embarrassed about how bad they were!

-- Colour print, childrens’ section, open – Blake put in a photo he took on my mobile phone while he was spinning around … and won 3rd place

-- Childrens’ Art and Craft, free painting – Blake won 2nd place for his "fireworks" painting

-- Childrens’ Art and Craft, scrapbooking – James won 3rd in his age category for his scrapbooking page from last year's Medieval Fair (he got to wear chain mail and armour!)

-- Childrens’ Art and Craft, scrapbooking – David won 2nd in his age category

And I got to go in the dairy goat milking competition … and came second to last out of 7 people. It was an absolute hoot and David caught in using the video feature on my mobile phone, so once I can work out how to upload it to my blog page you can see me crawling around on the ground after a rather cantankerous goat!
