Alisha Melville, 8 (and about to turn 9) strikes a pose that shows how a homemaker juggles her many skills. In her right hand is her blue-ribbon full wheat bread and in her left is her Best of Show quilt, behind her on the table are the many other entries that won blue ribbons. Alisha won six blues and two Best of Shows in quilts, preserves, baking and edible flower arrangement (for her green onion praying mantis) and took the Junior Homemaker Award. Alisha says canning is her favorite domestic art because she enjoys the steps of processing. She declined to share the ‘secret recipe’ for her blue ribbon chocolate cake. She is the daughter of Heather and Kurt Melville of Enterprise.
