I always enjoy entering sewing items in our local county fair. And I love to walk around looking at the textile displays to see what other people have been sewing and knitting. I feel so honored this year to have received 6 blue ribbons on 9 of the items I entered, including 2 "best of show" ribbons. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the "woolen article" trophy that I received for my blue socks, but someone did suggest using it for a bookend. :-)
One thing I've never done is to enter any sewing projects at the state fair. Our state fair is going on right now, and I hope to visit it one day next week. I'm sure to find lots of inspiration for future projects!
Oh, take notice of the sweetest baby ever---my grandson! Doesn't he have beautiful eyes?!
