The Utahraptor and Fantasy Tree are those I made for the Shuttlebirds convention. Both got first place blue ribbons, but the Utahraptor also got a "high blue" (considered for sweepstakes) ribbon and a Judge's Choice ribbon. I'm so vain -- I love getting the big ribbons!
The butterfly I made from Anne Bruvold's Christmas hearts got a blue ribbon, too. These are such perfect little hearts (not bragging on my tatting -- bragging on Anne's pattern!) . Depending on the categories at the State Fair (have to remember to look!), I might have to put a tail on it and call it a bookmark. Since I can only enter one thing in each category in the State Fair, I can't put the dinosaur and the butterfly in unless one of them fits somewhere besides "other".
These are seven of the Christmas ornaments I made using Jon Yusoff's snowflake patterns, and some little bits of fillers of one kind or another (one went to the marvelous Jeff). I entered them as a set and ended up with a sweepstakes ribbon! It made me laugh, though: the comment card said "Nice even loops, nice way to display" -- so I got a ribbon for display, or for tatting? Which ever, I have to thank Jon for such lovely patterns.
