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??
and if you can't sew
playing Thomas Train with your Grandson
is awesome too!
