Fair season is just plain fun. I like entering my bits and pieces in the fair -- it's the one bit of exhibitionism I engage in (no need to actually show your face in public). The County Fair is especially fun. There are no entrance fees, so there are no prizes except ribbons (well, okay, Best of Show gets something else -- this year it was a large glass compote bowl). Everyone is allowed to enter two things in each category. I entered two in every tatting category except table runner. I don't have tables that run. It's hard to take pictures of the stuff at the fair because they put the tatting in a glass case, or on a table behind the glass case.
I'm showing this one first, because I have to say "Thanks!" again to Jess. On the judge's card was the comment "Love the colors!" Yeah, me too. This is what I did with the Sunset thread and doily Jess dyed:
Done - Another day slaving over a...hot tatting needle...okay, maybe not. It does get a little warm though. Wow, that whole sentence just sounds terribly odd, I'm...
