I have been a bit tardy posting up my calendar girl cards, this one is from Lynda at Purple Missus and was for June, and the one below is from Debbi in Aus,please go to the calendar girl website by clicking on the logo as both cards are superb but spoilt by my photos.
The boasting is about our local horticultural show my daughter entered the fruit cake below

Olive entered this great scarecrow which won first prize, well done Olive.

I entered this bag in the item made from recycled items ,and got a first prize and best handicraft in show award!

This cushion which also won a first.

And my favourite this scarf, nuno felted and hand embroidered and beaded, got second because it was supposed to have been made from a metre of the same fabric and nuno felting was not considered as one fabric, well you live and learn.

The catalogue stated "three dressed onions" so that is what they got tongue in cheek, well the judges have a good sense of fun as they got a Highly commended, and a comment saying " on this occasion they were a little overdressed"!

So next year I am going to work out a way of doing "runner beans" any suggestions.

Congratulations all round - all the entries are fantastic, and I love the Dressed Onions. Next year perhaps a table runner made from Nuno felt incorporating runner beans? Well, maybe not.
