This week is county fair, a small but fun one. I worked the fair on Sunday, and got to see how my entered items “faired”.
Reserve Grand Champions
1st and 2nd Place Winners
Very happy with the results. I do not produce to win a competition, I just make what I want and enter what fits their categories, so I am not worried about perfection.
As always there are judge comments on the tickets. On all of the quilted items her comment was “Corners could have been sewn shut”. You know, they could have, but they aren’t GOING to be. I don’t have time to tack the mitered corners. My quilts have yet to fall apart because I didn’t. I think next year I will continue to not do it just to make her have to write it over and over and over. Snark off LOL.
Wandering Cat will get this irk. The knitting division covers all hand knit items, so they all compete for the Grand Champion ribbon. The GC was a vest, totally bypassing an Aran sweater. The vest was a modular knit style, nothing really jaw dropping. Reserve was taken by a sock made with self patterning yarn. There was my colorwork hat and a pair of colorwork mittens, and you’re going to tell me a pair of socks beat out those? Sometimes I wonder where they get the judges.
Thursday to Saturday I am dog sitting, so I plan to take my sewing machine and work on Cabin Skein, front cover of book, lower left corner. It’s on my new project list, so this is its month, I’m going in!
What’s on your list today?
