2015 State Fair results

Back in August, I must have been so spellbound by my new granddaughter that I forgot to post State Fair results.  It had been several years since I had sent anything so I had plenty of work from which to select.  Six of the seven things I entered won ribbons.  It was a lot of fun and pretty shocking.  My work isn't the most beautiful, elaborate or technically perfect, but the judges were kind anyway..


Back row:  Ott light tote bag embellished with needlepoint panel & Ol' Glory project bag
Middle row:  Clover stumpwork oval, Tree of Life amulet necklace, Eagle framed needlepoint
Front row:  Needleworker cross stitch from Little House Needleworks 

Better pics:






The ribbons are wonderful but the prize money paid for the two trips over and back to the fairgrounds.  I think that tickled me more than the ribbons!

Until next time, Stitch Happy!
