In August I helped out at the Jefferson City Fairgrounds and entered some of my projects and won some ribbons. How fun, this was my 1st time entering things in a fair and a great learning experience. I also enjoyed working with my FCE group to volunteer at the fair, we had a good participation and won $200 for our group.
I got a Blue Ribbon for my Mini Easter Egg quilt, my Gingham Kitchen Towel and 9 Patch Pot holder didn't get a ribbon but it looks nice in the display area.
My Thanksgiving wall hanging got 3rd Place.
My Beaded Butterfly Pin got a Blue Ribbon too. I'll have to take a better picture of it since it did not show up well in the case.
I won this great pr of Socks at Holloway's Country Store in Cosby TN a couple of weeks back by commenting on their Blog about what type of quilting Block "Knocked my Socks Off!" - it was the pinwheel block. a very simple and humble block but set it off with a log cabin block alternating rows - Wow! These socks were designed by Maria Holloway herself. I had so much fun going down to pick these up. Marie just had gotten in a new shipment of fabric so I was able to take a peek before they put it out on the shelves... "my idea of FUN!"
