The Grange fair was this past weekend. I pre-registered a few weeks ago. I ended up entering in nine different categories (last year I only entered one).
I made this quilt to go in our bedroom. It didn't win anything. I had a lot of blank unquilted space that just didn't look right, and they called me on it. Now I have something to work toward for next year. Oh, but you should have seen the winners! They were magnificent!
Participant. This is totally what I was expecting.
But, hey, look! Maybe making (and eating) all those chocolate cakes over the last month-and-a-half really paid off!
And wow! Way to go, February Lady! (Although Caitlin was disappointed that her birthday sweater didn't win a ribbon. She also didn't want to part with it for the week. "What if I need it?" she asked. In August? Not likely)
And if you've ever thought about making Leslie's chocolate chip cookies--you know, her version of the Toll House recipe--I can tell you that it is now officially a prize-winning recipe!
