I know that I've mentioned that my baby sister loves to garden and joined a garden club last year. Well, being a new member she was asked to create the garden clubs display for the Chenango Country Fair this year. The theme for her category was "On The Front Porch" so she decided to combine her love of flowers with her other passion - quilting and created the sunflower display you see above.
Well, baby sister not only did well but took the top three awards:
1st Place in Class (Section B "On The Front Porch" - Class 4 "The Sampler")
Awarded the Novice Award (The Novice Award may be awarded to the highest scoring exhibit in a class designated for a first time exhibitor or someone who hasn’t won a blue ribbon in the Design Division of a Chenango County Fair Standard Flower Show.) Awarded by the Local Garden Clubs
AWARD OF DESIGN EXCELLENCE (NATIONAL GARDEN CLUBS TOP EXHIBITOR AWARDS DIVISION) - May be awarded to an exhibit scoring 95 or above entered by a single exhibitor, judged the finest in the entire Design Division. Only 1 Award of Design Excellence MAY be awarded.
Needless to say I couldn't be prouder of her. Proud as a peacock you could say.
CONGRATULATIONS baby sis on a job well done. You hit this one out of the park.
