County Fair Blue Ribbon


Monday, June 18, 2012

So I entered a couple of my crochet projects in the local county fair this year--first time participant.

Won a blue ribbon for the afghan I made for my hubby. The photo doesn't do it justice, and my husband even complained that they did a poor job of putting it on display...that's when I knew he was proud of my work.

In the close-up you can make out some of the leaves in the border. It actually has roses and our names written in a 3-D stitch. Guess I'll have to get a better picture after I bring it home.



Then there was my 'also-ran' entry of my kitty's couch.



Ironically, I believe the winner in that category are the Pooh and Friends that are sitting on MY afghan. Disney out-cuted me!!!

    Oh...it's a Big A$$ county fair. Runs for 4 weeks prior to the 4th of July--one of the main fireworks displays...and then gone...followed by horse-racing season.

    I would not have imagined a county fair in the metropolitan area. Makes me think of little towns and farm country.

    Hurrah for you!!! A first-place on your first try is awesome! I've never been able to crochet and I've tried and tried. I even got the "Dummies" book for crocheting.

Congratulations!!! emoticon
