Fair Photos

I thought I would share my Sunday with you at the Howard County Fair. Hubby and I took our youngest granddaughter and we had a great time, even tho it was hot! The fair provides wheel chairs free of charge. I am so grateful for this service as I would not have been able to attend since I still cannot walk for very long. The big game winner of the day was my DGD! I even had to ask her to win a prize for me as I wasn't doing very well in the game department! Here she is with the first two prizes that she won.

My hubby usually takes my picture while I am pointing to my entry I am pointing to knitted pink sweater which won Third Place.

This picture is a bit out of order but I wanted to share with you the Ravens Marching Band, which open the fair every year! Woo Hoo! They sound great!

Okay, back to entries. This is my machine pieced and machine quilted Basket Quilt. How do you like those basket buttons? It won Third Place.

Here I am pointing to that picture frame in the case. It is machine embroidered. I won Third Place. I was told by several volunteers at the fair that the judges loved it and had there been less competion I would have won a Blue. That's okay, I am quite happy with third:)

There is the blue night gown I made for my granddaughter. It won Second Place. She was thrilled to see the ribbon on it!

Unfortunately this one is hard to see. This is a bib apron I whipped up in just a couple days. It won a Blue Ribbon. I will take a better picture when my camera has recharged!

The other small quilt I entered was this wall hanging. It is made primarily from reproduction fabrics. It didn't win a ribbon. The judges wrote on the tag that even tho they liked my colors, corners and pattern, my stitch in the ditch quilting strayed a time or two, therefore, no ribbon:(
It is hard staying in that little ditch:)

Well, that is it for my fair entries for now. Next week the Maryland State Fair begins. I will be entering these six items plus a few more that I have been working on. I will have more details on my next post!
