Maryland State Fair

These are some projects that you haven't seen yet. This picture frame, with one of my DGD's picture in it, won Third Place at the Howard County Fair. It is machine embroidered. It did not win a ribbon at the state fair.

This is the first garment I have ever knitted. It won Third Place.It was supposed to be for youngest DGD but I had to keep ripping it out and starting over. And now she is five!!!!! I will probably offer it for sale at my guild show in March.

This apron won a Blue Ribbon at the Howard County Fair, but nothing at the state fair. There were a lot of entries. The critique was that they (judges) loved everything, but the gathers weren't perfectly spaced.

And here was my surprise!!! My wool saltbox table mat won a Blue Ribbon and Viewer's Choice!!! This is the first time I have ever won a Viewer's Choice Award! I would like to thank everyone who voted for me:)

My other items you have already seen pictures of in previous posts. So here are my stats for this year: Howard County Fair: 6 items, 5 ribbons, $18.50.
Maryland State Fair: 8 items, 5 ribbons, $32.00.
I have already selected my wool project for next year, plus I have some quilts to finish for next year as well! Please share your fair experiences with me as I love to hear them. Have a great day!
