The week before last we attended our local fair and we were very fortunate to be able to bring home some “Best of Show” awards. I thought those of you who visit us here would like to see the honors.
Kyrstyn's Beautiful Call Duck Stanley was awarded Grand Champion and the Best Duck in Show. She is a beauty if I say so myself.
Kyrstyn also hand painted a gourd and it was awarded first place for the youth division then Best of Show and it was also given a special award of recognition by the California Gourd Society.
|The gourd is painted as if a hand were grasping it ~ however it is hard to show that in a photograph, in person it is stunning. The shading and detailing are amazing.|
|Again it is hard to show the detail work done on this necklace as well at the other beaded items of Kynnedy's but she has become quite adept at all of her beading ventures.|
Kynnedy also won first place with her 'Little Ladies in Blue' and her 'Two Tone Triangle Bracelet' as well as her adorable 'Flying Pig' Christmas ornament.
Kyrstyn brought home a first place ribbon with her water color painting of a parrot.
I often tell the girls how talented they are, but they say, "Awe Mom you are just prejudice." Well maybe, but I still think they are awfully talented.
