Again I am sorry that it has taken me this long to get these pictures loaded and ready to put on the blog. The State Fair is still going on for another week, but we went on Monday 8/27. It was hot and it didn’t take me long to get grumpy! The crowds got a little pushy, and by 4pm I told my family I wanted to go home.
Actually, I really wanted a Dunkin Donut iced coffee. I got one about 5 minutes after leaving the fair grounds and I felt much better!
Here is my pumpkin pin cushion which got Honorable Mention. (Excuse the poor lighting on these photos – left that job to my hubby and he said he felt too pressured!!! lol)
This is my Dumbling bag. Not displayed as nicely as I would like, but hey! What is that saying? If you want to do something right you gotta do it yourself!
This is my hedgehog finger puppet. Now, what disturbs me about this is the fact that when I entered him HE HAD A NOSE! Now he doesn’t! I have a feeling that he had a nose when they judged him but they people setting up the displays manhandled him and his delicate little pompom nose became detached! I must confess that I am a little embarrassed because I don’t think he looks as cute as when I turned him in! I will fix him when I get him home.
This is my final item – it was the first one I had finished back in the beginning of spring. Again the lighting doesn’t show its true colors etc. so when everything is home I will retake pictures in better light.
There were certainly so many wonderful entries there and many I thought so much better than mine! I am humbled and grateful! And I saw the socks that won…… holy cow – I will NEVER enter a plain jane pair of socks ever again!!! The winners were just awesome!
Thanks for looking!
