  1. Nice shot. I wonder how long that ball of twine would be unravelled. Any idea?

    • No clue! It was sort of sitting off to the side by itself, no other “competitors” nearby. It may have won by default (can’t imagine it’s as popular a category as, say, banana bread or mittens). I looked for a weight — actual or estimate — but there was no tag with any info, other than the competitor’s name and ribbon.

  2. Love it!! =)

  3. The child is so cute. :)

  4. Jeni – Never expected that in this challenge!! :-)

  5. It’s big, but the kid is cute :D

  6. I wonder how many people bothered to make a large ball of twine for the competition. And what would you do with it afterwards?

    • I’m hoping just one, and … and … and now I’m not going to be able to sleep until I figure out how to answer the second question.

  7. You might have an idea now of what to do next time to win something for an odd thing? .. Cute picture anyhow.. ;) – Thank you for pinging me !!

    • There are SO many weird categories! I don’t have access to a lot of binder twine, though, so I’ll have to let someone else take that first prize ribbon …

  8. Nice photo – I love the kid’s expression.

  9. This is too funny. I have to admire the dedication though. What a cute child!

    • I wonder how long it took to collect, and assemble. So many unanswered questions! And thank you!

  10. Amazing … the things that people collect and put together. Love it! ;-)

    • Reminds me of a story I heard on CBC Radio once, of a man who was cleaning out his deceased grandmother’s closets and came across a box labelled — and filled with — “Bits of string to short to use.”

  11. Love the expression!!

  12. That’s a lot of twine! :-) Cute pic.

  13. Wow, that is big!

  14. I love love love the look on little one’s face. Like…really?

  15. Wouldn’t it be funny if it had been at the Bindertwine festival? Love the look on that little boy!

  16. Love the expression on that little boy’s face. :)

    I guess that a farmer might have a bunch of this twine leftover after a long winter but to take the time to roll it all into a ball? Prize for the biggest pumpkin must already have been taken…

  18. Ha ha that’s the craziest category!!

  19. So strange!!! I like the pic!!!! I suppose I would have the same expression on my face…I am not sure what is this useful for…
    Thanks for stopping at my place!
