The first entry we checked was GooseyGirl’s pastel bird drawing. She drew an oriole. The drawing itself didn’t win a ribbon but it is in a very high profile place where thousands of people will walk past during the course of the fair. She was disappointed, but I was so proud of her for entering. I think it is a fabulous drawing!
Next we hunted down RocketMan and BirdMan’s Stuffed Animals. They each made a bird and guess what?!? They BOTH got an Honorable Mention ribbon! Hooray! We were so excited and they were really proud. Just think of how many people enter things who don’t get a ribbon at all. Way to go boys!
We searched and searched for GooseyGirl’s tote bag. When we found it I started jumping up and down. She got a red, second place ribbon!! I’m pretty sure the kids were a bit embarrassed as I squealed with excitement among all the people there. This photo of her is so precious. Can you see her eyes dancing with joy?
Finally, we found my single entry. It is the Jubilee Tree quilt which is based on a panel and I designed the pattern. I had to put my entry in the Professional category and since I did a machine binding front/back, I didn’t think it was going to win anything. Boy was I surprised and THRILLED!
