I don't know how I missed this after being here all week, but I found Madi's woven poncho in the Family Living department! ~Ashley

What a day we had yesterday! Fleece to Shawl/Sheep to Shawl day... It's probably the most nerve wracking but also most exciting days of the Farm Show! There was a total of 6 youth teams and my mom had 3 youth teams there from her Fiber Club. All of the kids did amazing! Results follow:
Twisted Sisters and a Dude - 1st Place Champion Fleece to Shawl team (Theme: Gone with the Wind)
Fiber Frenzy- 3rd place team (Theme: Wizard of Oz)
The Fibering Five - 4th place team (Theme: Herb Garden)
Enjoyable family night last night supporting Madi and the whole Bell crew at the Square Dancing contest at the PA Farm Show tonight!
The beginning of Farm Show has been wonderful to our family! We've seen so many good friends who have stopped by our booth and have been a part of so many exciting events!
Miss Madi had quite the weekend at the PA Farm Show! Yesterday she started her day with a meet and greet with the Governor and Secretary of Ag followed by the opening ceremonies! Afterwards she participated in showmanship where she received 2nd place in her category of 20+ very talented seniors! From there, she went on to watch the results of the PA Preferred Cookie Bar Contest and we were shocked when she was announced the first place winner out of all of those entries! She also participated in the Fashions with a Flair, gave multiple demonstrations, and is going to be helping at the celebrity rabbit hopping event later tonight! She's going to be one tired puppy by the end of the week!
Tyler also entered some hay and received a 1st place in his class! Stay tuned for more of the Farm Show fun!
Today is rabbit show day at the PA State Farm Show! Madi has been busy showing her rabbits and promoting the rabbit industry as the PA State Rabbit Breeders Queen, but she also found time for a quick milkshake break!
We are all set up and ready for the PA Farm Show starting this Saturday January 6-13th!! A New Year= New Yarns and we can't wait to share them with everyone starting at the Farm Show! Stop by our booth in the Main Hall near the Small Food Court and say hi... Booth #587! Our family will be there all week at our stand, participating in many of the events/shows, and volunteering! Its going to be a fun week ahead!
