Well for my first time ever entering, I was happy to receive second place blue ribbons for each project. Now, I don't want to seem ungrateful but I know that I should've won first place. I entered the pinafore in the category, Dress For Under 2 Years. The dress that won first place was honestly made crudely from an old pillowcase that had shoddy embroidery and random buttons haphazardly placed all over. The afghan lost to another ripple afghan, the only differences were the colours and that mine happened to be round. Now nepotism runs rampant in this area, so again for the first time ever entering, winning second place is not bad at all. It just makes me want that big pretty red first place rosette even more!!!
This picture best shows the colours in the afghan, all picked by my daughter (her favourite colours)
My hubby and kids thought it was so cool to see my creations on display, and of course it felt great to put them out there for all to see. I loved entering the fair and can't wait until next year to do it again!!
Thanks for letting me share,
