As you can see, I got a nice second place ribbon for them. The comment card said "beading should lay flat, so work is too tight" Yes, I wondered about that. I seem to have to add a stitch or two here and there to various patterns to get them to lay flat. That or block the bejabbers out of 'em. These I didn't block at all, so I think I'll be taking them off the card, blocking, then putting them back on the card for the state fair. Unless I find a spare few hours to make new and better ones (as if).
They're pretty, though, aren't they? Just say "Yes!" :)
