I won blue ribbons on everything I entered except my photo and my apple pie. They got nothing.
There's a story with this shawl. The judges loved it. In fact, they pinned the Grand Champion ribbon on it, but we had to tell them I am ineligible for that ribbon because I entered as professional. Professionals can not win Grand Champions. So they gave it to another entry (in my opinion, it deserved it more than my shawl). They put a gold star on my judging sheet instead. That gold star means more to me than any ribbon could.
Now, on to beading.
Strung necklace with lampwork focal bead
This is the one I never took pics of. I could have sworn I blogged about it! I will have to rectify that.
Last, but not least. My Poinsettia Tree Christmas stocking.
That's everything. Now, to start work on next years entries. ;-)
Live long and prosper. \\//
