The Results Are In!

Drumroll please....

I did pretty well at the fair!  I was there today and checked everything out.

Seven items placed first in their category:
sport shirt
girl's jumper
girl's blouse
girl's nightgown
doll clothes

Two items took second place:
child's socks
boy's pajamas

One item came in third:

Which leaves four items that didn't place:
apron, jacket, socks, scarf

So, that means I won about $90.00.  I really enjoyed looking at all the things entered.  The quilts were particularly amazing. 

Overall, I am pleased with how I did and I didn't find the judging too perplexing.  Well, except for one category.  The jacket.  Of course, I'm being completely and totally objective here, but I was ROBBED!!  There were only four jackets entered.  The first place one looked terrible.  The second place one looked better than it and the third place one looked better than the second one!  Really, I don't get it.  Of all the things I entered, that was the most complicated and nicely finished.  Okay, I'm getting over it.  Seriously, that was the only category that I felt that way about.  So, I'll go back to being happy about it all now.

I'll have to pick up the things on Monday and then we can actually wear them!  Thanks for all your kind wishes - this was a fun endeavor.


  1. Impressive...congrats! Did you win any sort of award for the most items entered?!

  2. Hey, I love your jacket! I have the same one planned for winter. I cut it out last winter... Great job on your winning entries and money earned!

  3. Congratulations on your wins. I totally agree, though - that jacket is fabulous. You were robbed!

  4. Congratulations on your endeavor. You did great! I know the items you entered had so many details constructed with precision. I don't see that at our county fair, so I'm guessing you are up against stiff competition. Enjoy the prize money and all the family should enjoy the wearing the fruits of your labors. I enjoyed the experience vicariously.

  5. Congratulations on your winds. Enjoy the money you earned.

  6. Congrats! Great job! It must feel good to get appreciation and recognition for all of your hard work! :)

  7. Congratulations! It sounds to me like the judges may have gotten the jacket tickets reversed. Do you think it could have been a mistake? Your jacket certainly is lovely. I've made that pattern and I know how complex it is.

  8. Congratulations! That is awesome. :)
