|Kiddie Rides at the Melbourne Show|
I would probably have to go to the show sans children to be able to spend the time I'd like to in the craft and cookery pavilion. We did get to visit the pavilion however, all because I had entered Miles the Crocodile (see previous post) in the Royal Children's Hospital Cuddly Toy Class.

The toys entered in this section get judged, they are displayed, and then donated to the Royal Children's Hospital when the show is over. I was pretty excited to make something for the show that would go on display. I was also pretty excited that it would then go to a child in hospital who was no doubt in need of cheering up.

I looked around with a goofy grin on my face to see who else was amazed by my awesome knitting prowess. I was met with a cold stare from an elderly lady standing at a nearby podium surrounded by a small audience. I think she was attempting to describe the correct density of a fruitcake, and perhaps my enthusiasm may have caused some interruption.
