Well, I will get this over with first...as I expect that some might be led to anticipate more entries from me if I with hold it for long. With putting in what is probably altogether too much time in my various volunteer activities (church newsletters, 4-H sewing leader, etc.) I have seriously cut into my own creative time...
When I finally took time to try and gather things together to enter, I could only come up with 4 items to take. I, of course, remembered the location of others when already at the fair assisting with the open class registration...but too late at that point.
Here are my entries...I have shown all of these, except the necklace, on this blog previously...
I was pleased with the ribbons I received on all four items. Blue on the necklace, blue on the childs wrap skirt, blue and reserve champion on the afghan I made for my Rosie Posie (I had to ask her permission to take it), and blue and champion on the Norma Benporath Lace Mat that I borrowed back from Older Daughter. I was exceedingly pleased with the last, of course!
Only one tatted entry? I know, I know...I would have liked to enter something tatted in the thread edging class and there was a jewelry class that tatted jewelry would have fit with in...but I hadn't time to finish either item, perhaps next year!
Mine was also the only tatted entry, I had hoped there would be more...I know that there are other tatters in the county due to what I have seen at the state fair, but I don't believe the smaller county fair is as popular a venue for people to enter their work. We did, however, have the highest number of both participants and entries overall that anyone there could remember having in recent memory so that was positive!
Next, I believe, will have to be a showing of Daughter's projects...and then her ribbons after I think.
