I just realized, I have 6 days til the fair. I still have so much to get ready. I took off work Wednesday and Thursday to make sure that I am not rushed, but still . . .
I am working really hard to finish my little ornament so I can enter that. I am hoping to have it done this evening, then tomorrow I can go on a run to get the finishing supplies and finish it. I am working on "Santa's Unexpected Gift," which is really cute. Not sure if it will do well at the fair, though. My county fair tends to be rather conservative or should I say, out of step, which is odd in a county that is so cosmopolitan. I say this because our fair catalogue has an entry for cross stitch in the "Oriental" category, and their idea of a sampler is a traditional sampler, there is no room for the non-traditional. So I am not sure if the idea of Santa holding a dragon in his hand is going to go over big with the judges. But, again, it won't go over at all if I don't enter. And I am a good stitcher (I am not a modest one, though), and I think the fact that I've used metallics, opalescent fabric, that freaking Fuzzy Stuff, which I hate using because it's hard to see the finished stitches, as well as doing the little dragon over one, that ought to count for something. But I still have to get some stuff ready for the state fair, because I plan on finishing a companion towel to my Brittercup dirty towel.
I am also planning on baking this year. I have never entered food in the fair before, at least not as an adult, but I am a good cook, and I can compete with these other women. I am thinking of doing my honey crunch cookies, and will try to do my Cheesy Rice Krispie cookies, if they have a class for savory cookies.
