I entered one of my bird houses (the blue cottage) into the Comox Valley Exhibition and won.  Not only won in the category of bird houses but got the blue ribbon for the overall category that included wood crafts like furniture and carvings.  I think the little flowers in the flower boxes might have tilted the scale. 

Did not win best of the Hobby and Craft show because there are some SERIOUS quilting ladies in the valley and great artists.  There is no category for ship models so I have to go with one of the minor hobbies.  Still I was kind of pleased.

It is Sunday and a gorgeous day so Pat and I took Little Red for a long drive before going back to the exhibition to collect the birdhouse and see how I did.  A nice day
