All of my Fair entries with ribbons

Here is a photo of everything I entered and how they all did. I actually only entered 14 items, as they didn't  accept one photo because it didn't have a hanger.. oh well..  Click on it for a larger view.
So 10 wins out of 14.. even better! And 13 ribbons.. yeeeehaw!
Oh, this will be my last post about it.  On to getting caught up with the Christmas ornament challenge. I am a few weeks behind because of the fair, so I will get caught up and post the picture here asap!

Fair wins 2010!!!

video
My sweet Bellaluna won!  I was very excited to see a Sweepstakes ribbon and Judge's Choice on her! Wow!!!
Of all of the things (15) I put in the fair, I didn't really care if any of them won, except for her. I had such high hopes, and they came true! Here is a video of the pictures from the fair, along with better photos of each entry.

Bellaluna on her perch

Ok, she is OFFICALLY finished now. I just finished making her perch and attaching her to it.  I bought the flat of wood at Wal-mart, and I got the branch off of my dying apple tree.  I put a washer and screw from the bottom up through the top and through the branch. I stained it, and varnished it, and, by golly, it is just like I imagined it would look!  Cross your fingers for me and Bellaluna, for we must enter the fair on Thursday, and wait until Sunday to see if the judges like her.

Gothic Twilight Necklace

Hiya! I just finished this necklace that I wanted to put into the fair. The necklace pattern is not my own, I saw it on the internet (it is the design of agasunset, here is her blog, and she sells it on her etsy page.. minus the Edward cameo

sorry I don't remember where) and when I put the red beads on it, I thought, this looks like something from Twilight (it is a movie about a girl and a vampire, in case you have been hiding under a rock).
Then, I thought it would look cool if I made a 'cameo' of Edward (vampire) and wrapped it in tatting and hung it as the focal point.  I used computer shrink plastic to make the image, then, I used black sewing thread for the tatting around the cameo. (I used DMC black sized 8 for the necklace.)  I think it looks pretty neat, so, it is going into the fair, too. One week to go!
