Fair '08 Results


16 entries: One 2nd Place Special Premium Award for knitting, 13 blue ribbons, and 3 red ribbons.

My Pomatomus socks surprised me. I knew they were blue ribbon quality, but this is fantastic!

Blue ribbon on the copper and turquoise Cellini spiral. YES!!!

Blue ribbon on the Tigereye Double Spiral bracelet.

Blue ribbon on the Transparent Pink NettedCabochon necklace.

Blue ribbon on my Bead Crochet necklace with the Yellow Turquoise pendant.

Blue ribbon on the Felt Appliqué Christmas stocking I made for Sweet Ruthie.

Blue ribbon on the Leaf Fringe ornament cover.

Red ribbon on my Happiness Socks-though to be honest I think they were overly generous. (I know when my workmanship isn't up to par to my standards)

Red ribbon on the purple baby socks.

Red ribbon on the Aurora Borealis ornament cover.

Blue ribbon on the Purple Charades.

Blue ribbon on the dinosaur.

Blue ribbon for Edaline the Mermaid.

Blue ribbon for Ferdinand! Hurray!

I also entered 2 bead knitted amulet necklaces from my book projects that both won blue ribbons.


I did good!

(I do apologize for the quality of the photos. Especially the ones taken of items in glass cases. I haven't mastered how to do that yet.)

Have a great day.
