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.
