We took all our "Home Arts" and "Creative Arts" items to enter in the State Fair today. (Sounds better than saying all our stuff.) I had a 2.5 hour lunch because it took so long to get them entered. They write all the tags by hand and some of them write really slowly. I looked around at the other entries while I was waiting -- okay, not looked around, peered over the barrier of tables to see what might be visible. I think there are a couple of things I entered I should have just left home. I dunno 'bout y'all, but my mind gets weird at 3:00 in the morning and thinks things look lots better than they do!
I entered eleven home arts items, 10 tatted and one crocheted. There are a few I entered in the State that I didn't enter in the County Fair (those 3:00 in the morning ones, and a couple of others). I don't have any pictures to show -- that'll have to wait until the 8th when I go to the Fair and see the results. This is just a little panic blurb...gaaakkkk-- what if they're all really bad? This is the first year I've entered as Advanced Amature (the next step is professional and I don't make a living on this stuff!). What's the standard? Is it that much higher than Amature? I don't know. It just seemed silly to not use the Advanced when at least three of the things I entered were my own patterns, ya know?
Little boxes once again! - Wandering through the shop in town a few weeks ago I spotted more of these boxes. Well I succumbed as usual and came home with a few. They look lovely ...
