Opening of the 2014 EKKA
QLD Mounted Police Unit......
Heather is riding Jigsaw, second horse from the right ..... biggest horse smallest rider.
Tuesday found Norreen and me off to the QLD EKKA for a bit of fun.....
so where would crafty people go first, to see the quilts of course.
This one didn't win a prize but I loved it..... wonderful hexies.
This one won first in its section.
There might be something wrong with me...... no comments please..... I really liked this quilt which is odd as its not normally what I would go for but I found it very interesting and loved the way the colours were used.
Then off to see the cakes ..... wow they were so wonderful.
the Chalet won Grand Champion and by a bloke too, my photo is from the back unfortunately as there was a lot more detail on the front but you get the idea.
These flowers were fantastic too.
We had to have a bit of a rest as our little tootsies were getting very tired.
Now for the main reason I went to the show....
to see the Mounted Police Officers of which Heather is one of them.....
so very exciting.
Here she is riding Idle..... a very large horse.
Then .... eating of course.... yummo Strawberry ice creams.
How on earth did I end up here in the cat area you ask...... well that's Norreen's fault.....
Holy cow get me out of here eeeeeeek
It gets very chilly in QLD you know so the trees needed a nice woollen jumper.
no cold trunks here..... sorry, bit of a joke for you.
Looking a bit worse for wear here and hugging our show bags waiting for the train to go home.
We did have a very good day and I think we will do it again next year.
