It has a nice second place red ribbon (I forgot to take a picture before I entered it).
The competition in the doily category was pretty stiff this year. One large doily made in cream and brown of a bazillion little motifs won the sweepstakes ribbon. The variegated brown looks very striking with the cream used for most of the doily.
We picked up all out fair entries today and I read through all the judge's comments attached. Both judges disliked the thread color. They said it detracted from the pattern and my "nice, even stitches," which it why it got a red ribbon. One also said that the addition of the white thread caused it to look fuzzy and out of focus. Rats. I liked the effect -- it looked tweedy to me. Now I wonder if I should get something else for a wedding present!
