Last night was the first annual WISH Local Show - with the added excitement of a last minute special guest!
We'd decided we wanted to have an event that didn't have all the stress and pressure of the Women's Institute County Show. We had just five basic categories: a tray bake, a plate of cookies, a child's hat, a poem of four lines, and a key chain/bag charm.
I usually bake cookies for Christmas, so I decided to enter a couple plates of family favourites: my chocolate chip cookies which are popular with my nieces and nephews & a plate of pinwheel cookies which impressed the aunties.
I was a bit disappointed with the pinwheels. The spiral wasn't as tight as normal, so they weren't quite as impressive, but the chocolate chip cookies were all right.
Once everyone checked in their entries we just had to wait for the arrival of our celebrity judge!
Deb Connor started a dedicated campaign to bring him to our local show.
To finish the evening we pulled out the scarf we made for St Helen's Dream last year, and someone came up with the clever idea of wrapping is around Ross Noble. Of course the Dream Scarf is just a little big, so it became more of a full body wrap.
After a bit of hopping about (and an unexpected surprise for Ross) eventually Mr Noble managed to escaped from his cocoon. Morven and her other half have put together a quick video of the highlights.
