State Fair 2013!

2 weeks ago Angel dropped my fair stuff off for judging ~ 8 days ago we saw all the ribbons for everyone ~ the fair ends on Sunday ~ we pick up our stuff on Monday & the fair is over for another year!

Here are some pictures from our morning at the fair!

its not the fair without Amys Deep Fried Milky Way Bar ~ her once a year treat!

ooey, gooey delicousness!
I stuck to my declaration of last year and only made stuff I really liked!  I had lots of quilted items, embroidery, cross stitch, smocking etc.  I had a few wooden items I wanted to do but ran out of time!  It would be really nice if the judges gave you a critique of what they liked or more importantly didn't like about a project ~ why a red instead of a blue ribbon or white instead of red, etc.  This fall and winter will be spent making crafts and being cozy.
