We’ve been awful quiet on the blog for a long while, partly because of the 4H fair craziness, and partly because we just let life get in the way.

 

But at any rate, I’m going to try to do a picture (or two, or three!) a day next week during the fair, as well as the three days of judging this week.

 

That way you can kind of ‘come along’ with us to the fair πŸ˜‰

 

Today they are judging the sewing projects, and this is Anna’s project. Β She came up with the idea, and between her and Leah, they made up a pattern and Anna sewed it up. Β There was a little trial and tribulation trying to figure out how to add the chiffon skirt, and sewing the slippery stuff, but she came out triumphant with new skills, and a pretty dress πŸ™‚

These pictures are from a photoshoot she and Leah did at the park yesterday…

We’ve never done fashion review…just because we never have πŸ˜€ Β But this year the judge and a few other people convinced Anna, Bekah, and Noah to do it πŸ˜€

We normally only compete in the construction part, where the judge goes over your seams and stitches and looks at how well you’ve made it. Β In fashion review, you get to wear and model your outfit, and it is judged on how well it looks on you.

Bekah, modeling her jumper and blouse. Β She made up the jumper pattern by the way…isn’t she good?!

They had tons of fun, and I hear they’re planning on doing Fashion Review from now on πŸ˜€

I’ll be back tomorrow with another picture (or five!) πŸ˜‰

      Lol! I’m not even sure I know exactly what they got! I think they’ve all received blue ribbons on everything, and a few blue honors. We’ll know about Grand and Reserve Champions on Sunday, I think! They like to keep that part a surprise πŸ˜€

        I am sure at least one of you will! I wish my Leather teacher hadn’t retired in Marshall. I was getting really close. πŸ˜€

    Anna’s project = that dress is gorgeous!!
    I could see myself wearing it to a business function for my husband. Classy and modest. SO hard to find gowns and dresses like that!
