I entered 12 pieces in all into seven categories and won.........mnsix ribbons! And made back my fair entry fee with $4 to spare!
A third place for my Marilyn Robertson Art deco black cat set (four of the pieces)
and first places for "Witches Wheel"
We went back later in the afternoon afternoon and found my ornaments. They hung them on a tree about ten feet away but they were there!
All but two were in glass cases, and so there is some glare... Apologies!

My husband says I am with my needlework like he is with his hostas --- enter them in the show and hope that you will sweep the ribbons and even with 6 ribbons, I was fretting over that one missing piece with no ribbon! LOL
Now I can fret about why did my cats only get third and my Greek Window only a second. OK, I really didn't expect Greek Window (totally a different style from the other "picture" submittals I saw on display so probably not to the judges' tastes) to be a big winner, but the cats...
rifestitch wrote on Aug 5, '11 Yeah, well, if you read back through mine to the '09 and the '08 fairs I entered, I am STILL scratching my head over a couple of "odd" decisions by ""judges" at mine... And people are asking me why I'm bothering again this year - clearly, I'm a glutton for punishment :)
