Another year, another few fair wins

Another year at the Champaign County Fair.
My HOPE piece by Cindy Valentine won a first place and I could not be happier. I didn't follow the directions on this one to a "T", but I'm really happy with it and I guess the judge was to.

In another category I won a blue for Lizzie*Kate's "Life's a Stitch". I've wanted to do this one for ages and finally got it done this year. But who knew it was blue ribbon quality.

Susan's Needle Nook was first class stitching for me. A class piece where I missed the class, I found this one an easy fun piece that worked up quickly, even with the over one stitching. I'll take the red ribbon thanks.

Another piece I finally finished from years ago, Pocketfull of Posies scored me another 2nd place win. All in all a good year and I hope to become a more serious stitcher and get some things done to put in the show again next year.

Congratulations on your ribbons!! They are all beautiful pieces.

Small world - I went to high school in Danville, IL. I spent several many weekends in Champaign-Urbana because it always had more to do than Danville.
