County Fair, 2014

Every year, I have talked or dreamt about entering something in the County Fair.  This was my first year actually doing it.  Since I was going in, I may as well go all the way!  If you entered 5 things, you could go to the fair for free!  Free is good! 
I was overwhelmed by how well I did.  I never imagined.  I secretly thought I MIGHT win a ribbon for my Minoru. 
Here are my entries and the results....

Minoru, in the outerwear lot --- Best of Show!   I was floored.  I think I may have cried.


Archer in Blouses / Tops lot  -- First Place!

Vogue 8774 (my way) in Pants / Slacks lot  --  First Place!

Swell in the knit head cover lot  -- Third Place!

My Miette, (my first sweater ever!) in the knit sweater lot -- Third Place!
There were so many fine sewn and knit items entered.  I was overwhelmed by the talent hidden in this town!  One thing that came as a shock to me, was how excited I was to see the ribbons hanging on my things!  I had no idea how much this type of validation would mean to me!  I will definitely be entering again next year!!
and what is a Fair without a little fresh corn on the cob and a train ride??

Stay Happy
Keep Sewing
and if you can't sew
playing Thomas Train with your Grandson
is awesome too!
