My in-laws left town right before our county fair began. I have a key to their house. I decided that I was going to enter Miss Hathaway's Garden in the fair. I stitched this for my mother-in-law. On my way to the fairgrounds with 2 other pieces I was going to enter, I stopped by my in-law's and "borrowed" the English cottage picture.
My results from the items I showed:
- A blue ribbon and best of section for the crocheted doily
- A blue ribbon for the cross stitch sampler I designed
- A blue ribbon, best of section and first place rosette for Miss Hathaway's Garden
Last night, I returned the cottage picture to my in-law's house. This time, I really felt like a burglar because the park they are in only had 1 or 2 houses with lights still on! ;-)
When I re-hung the picture, I left the ribbons hanging on it. Ron and I are waiting to see how long it takes for either of my in-laws to notice!
