MN State Fair 2009
Ahhhh the MN State Fair. Food, people, Food, fun, Food, milk for $1, Food.... did I mention Food?
P and I went on Friday. We started off at Channel 9 and caught it just as it was ending the morning news. We then went to the 4H building and then the Fine Arts Building. Congrats to Ellen for her Honorable Mention for her first entry. That was awesome!
P's stamina (or lack there of) meant that I did a lot of things on my own. The Moo Booth, the butter sculptures, Horticultural Building, and Heritage Square.
Heritage Square was mostly full of "historic" junk, but I did enjoy the wood turner, the blacksmith and the log house.
I did get a lovely surprise by discovering my stockings in the "special case" with all the other honories. I received the Best Socks ribbon sponsored by Needlework Unlimited.
That was a huge thrill! They are the first things you see when entering the main door of the Creative Activities Building!
I entered my stockings in the "textured socks" category, but I did not receive any ribbons for that category. I will be interested in seeing the judging sheets. I can already predict the comments.
