The local Agricultural Show  plays a big part in our homeschool plans.  We spend around 3 weeks finalising creative projects for display at the Main Pavilion, plus a photo poster for the Homeschool display.   My rules for putting anything in the Show is that the kids have to do all the work themselves plus they have to want to put it in.  I provide the materials and time, they have to have the desire.

This year they all did well with over 40 items between them all, and a nice collection of firsts, seconds, thirds and highly commendeds.

Josh, who has previously decided making creative projects just isn’t his thing, decided this year to put in 2 items – free form clay angels (he made me for Christmas) and a wood work project.

Jess put in 14 items – sewing, embroidery, quilting, photographs, scrapbooking

Jessica’s embroidery for which she received a first

Nomi had 13 items – photographs, scrapbooking, sewing, embroidery, drawing, painting, teddy bear.  Nomi actually won the champion for handicrafts and for the art section for her age group (9-12yo).

Nomi made this bear and received first place – truly well earnt!

Daniel worked hard to put in the most (that was his goal!!) and he did at 15 items – embroidery, soft toy, photographs, woodwork, paper collage, lego,

I don’t have a close up of an individual project of Daniels but here is his collection!

Over the last 9 months or so we have  met with a few other homeschool girls regularly and learnt applique and quilting.  We call this time Keepers, or our Creative Club.  The girls worked hard to complete their quilts for the Show. 

Each of the quilts were different in some way –
but all the same colour scheme and pattern.
