County Fair - ribbons!

Hi Everyone!

This year I entered 7 cross stitch items in my county fair.  While I did expect to get some blue ribbons (1st place), I also expected a white (3rd place).  Thankfully, I was quite wrong on the white!

Here's what I entered and won:
  • Mystic Garden - HAED BB SAL from last year:  Blue
  • QS Hummingbird - HAEDBlue
  • Whitework Sampler - from the Gift of Stitching online magazine (retired):  Blue
  • Autumn Days - freebie pattern from Enchanted Needle Designs:  Blue
  • Faith, Family, Friends - from Just Cross Stitch (I think):  Blue
  • 12 Days of Christmas - by Teresa WentzlerBlue, Best of Section (purple), 2nd place Best of Show (red rosette)
  • Heirloom Christmas Sampler - from The Victoria SamplerBlue, Best of Section (purple), 1st place Best of Show (blue rosette)
The Heirloom Christmas Sampler is the one I expected to get a white ribbon.  According to one of the ladies who aided the judges, it was the detail of the Christmas tree that decided that one was first place and the 12 Days was second.  :-)

I took a photo of just the ribbons because all but one of the projects have acrylic over them and would cause a glare.  Here's all my ribbons:

Happy Stitching!
