..............................Fair

Ok, everyone, wish me luck! I just entered 20 (!) things in my county fair! I had the papers pre-filled out, and it still took me 45 min. to enter everything.
Tatting-wise I entered the haunted house, a doily I designed, Capt. Jack, Conor, Baby dragon, gloves, scarab necklace, and two cards with tatting on them. I also entered some photos, my hedgehog made from a gourd, 2 flower arrangements, and the ornament I made that is a shuttle with a little Rebel on top, tatting. Too bad I couldn't look at the entries already there. They used to let you, but, for some reason, stopped. Hmph! Anyway, I did happen to see an awesome looking Halloween quilt that I will take a photo of Sunday. That is when the building opens up and I can go see all the stuff. Oh, I can hardly wait!

i wish i could enter that much in our state fair, I can only enter 5 items and i have entered 5 again this year hoping to get 5 ribbons i will see.

Ginny, they only let you enter 5? We can enter as many as there are categories! There is only one "tatting" category, but, I also enter in the Christmas ornaments and decorations, and Halloween. The doily is in the knit and crochet, but it doesn't specify it HAS to be knitted or crocheted...just says doily. Also, most of my stuff is in crafts. I had to ask the 'helpers' about entering, and found I could enter a bunch.

Good Luck Carol! I know you will win many rib bons. I can't wait to see the results at the end!

Love the Ghost!! He looks just like the Stay Puff in the movie! You did a fantastic job on him.
