My neighbor friend Cathy, my daughter Lindsey and I went to the 20th Annual Louisiana Chicken Festival this weekend. I bought this poster to frame, I love it!
Small town festivals crack me up. We traveled quite a distance to find that these were the only chickens there! I like the tail feathers on the white one!
There was a very nice quilt show that had some really beautiful quilts. These two, were made by an 82 year old woman. Not sure how old she was when she started them, though. I know that if I started on making a quilt of this magnitude today that maybe by the time I was 82 it would be finished. All funning aside, these two quilts were absolutely exquisite. The intricate designs were appliquéd and hand-embroidered. The floral quilt above was said to have appraised at $5000. I can believe it, because it was absolutely gorgeous. It was my favorite. Cathy and Lindsey favored the second one. They were both beautiful!
I just loved this block from the quilt above. These photos do not do justice to the fine detail in these quilts.
Some of the festival-goers gettin' with it in the Strut, Cackle and Crow Dance. I would have joined in but I didn't want to shame those kids with my proficiency in chicken dancing.
This gentleman was one of three contestants in the BBQ Chicken Cook-Off. We didn't stay long enough to find out if he won, though.All in all, we had a nice time. Although, I would have liked to have seen some actual chickens. Live ones, that is! Oh well!
