Hot damn-state fair results

We went to the state fair today.

I far exceeded my expectations.

I got three 1sts: HOHRH, Chincoteagues, and Sea Life
I got 3 3rds: Americana Samplings, Santa's Unexpected Gift and As Far As we go
I got 2 seconds: Friends Gather and Iris and Friends.
One Honorable Mention: Celebrate

HOHRH was up for best of show. The woman knew it was going to be going for that when it was carried in. When you walk in the Home Arts building, it's one of the first cross stitches you see.

Santa's Unexpected Gift was entered in a Special Contest, so I win extra money for that.

I also got my check from Montgomery County fair today. It was $49.50. I never won that much before. I am at at least $42 with the State fair. I am proud of myself--not bad for my first try.

Congrats! I really encourage people to enter their local fairs and it seems you did spectacular on your first try :o) My items were just taken in today! Now I have to wait...

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
