Northern Agricultural and Pastoral Show

Saturday was a big day for Lil and Matt - it was the annul Northern A & P show. We had 3 entries in. I entered some homemade marmalade and a hand knitted toy, and I'm proud to say my marmalade won!

My knitting on the other hand, came fourth out of four. Ah well. Mine is the little Suffolk lamb:

Matt entered a special men only section - Vegetable Animal. He made a lion out of a butternut pumpkin:

.. and came first! The competition was fierce though, check out the other entries:

I particularly liked the cauliflower sheep entered by a local farmer:

If you're wondering what calibre of prize is offered for such feats of craft and homemaking, well I was awarded $4, and Matt is still waiting for his prize.
