Ribbons from the Fair - part 8

Okay, I'll admit it -- this was a disappointment. *sigh* This is my original Lock Chain ornament cover pattern. It's made in DMC size 80 red and green threads with red, green, and white beads. I made a completely different bottom for it, too. I like it very much. I think my tatting was very nice as well. The comment I got on this one was that it was not spaced evenly on the ball. Oh. Well, darn. Next time I'll get out my protractor, ruler and calipers! (Yeah, that was a really mature comment.)
Just like Nicole (my 8-year-old niece) I wanted one of the BIG ribbons for this one. Humility, indeed! (I dunno where to find any of that).

Oh, I haven't posted this one before, so it's number 12 for my 25 Motif Challenge.

Well, I for one, would agree with you and your niece. I think it looks like a BIG ribbon ornament.

It is actually a relief not to be the only one who gets disappointed over fair results.

That confessed (thanks for letting me get that off my check), your flood of ribbons are indeed impressive!

Hmmm.....I am guessing that the judges haven't tatted on ornaments before or are perfect beyond comprehension. I think your ornament looks just great! :)
