"Fair" Results

Do you like my play on words? LOL! Yesterday DH and I went to the FREX to pick up my items and although I am happy with how I did, it was kind of sad giving up my Grand Champion title ;o) Here were my results though -

Quilt Time Sampler ~ First Place
Gathering Eggs ~ Second Place
Biscornu ~ Second Place
Deck The Halls ~ Third Place

And...I brought home a total of $16! Well not really because DH and I went out for a treat afterwards :o) All I can say is, LOOK OUT next year because Cathey (and Katie!) are coming back with a vengeance!

While we were downtown, DH and I decided to take a stroll along the walking path and I got a chance to get some more pictures. This first one is of The Christ Church Cathedral -

That's where DH and I got married :o) Beautiful isn't it?

The other picture that I'm pretty proud of is one of "The Leopard" -

This guy is right outside The Beaverbrook Art Gallery. DH and I keep meaning to go there. We've both been there when we were younger but I doubt we really appreciated it. Not to the extent that we would today.

There are many places around the city that I have never been but keep meaning to go. It's a shame really because this city has a lot of history. I really should make it a point to visit some of those places next summer. Have you ever tried being a tourist in your own town before? Maybe you should try it too. You might learn a thing or two :o)

Congrats on all your wins!

I couldn't believe the piece that won grand champion... just because it was the biggest, doesn't mean it was the best lol.

If I had my pieces framed with glass, I would be much more tempted to enter.

Wow! That's a lot of great stitching...all those ribbons. Congratulations!

As for touring around your own city...every year they do "Be a tourist in your city" in Victoria BC. All the venues offer huge discounts to everything from museums to attractions to food places. We did it both years we lived there...wish more big cities would get on the band wagon and promote themselves to their own residents.

Congrats on your fair ribbons. It is always a fun thing to do IMO

I never thought to become tourists in our town. Probably b/c it is so rural around here. Tho building up quickly all around us.
