I did pretty well at the fair! I was there today and checked everything out.
Seven items placed first in their category:
Two items took second place:
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.
