the washington state fair is happening right now!
i love going to the fair.
for a little while at least...
i like it just enough to look at the quilts, ride a couple of rides and look at some animals.
then my inner introvert kicks in and the noise gets to be too much.
this year i had a lovely surprise waiting for me in the home arts department.
|kathleen's modern quilt|
|barb's beautiful chickadee quilt|
|gayle's red, white and blue log cabin|
aren't they just wonderful?!?
it's the perfect way to end my professional longarming career.
and my quilts??
|cornerstone got an honorable mention|
|silo barn quilt got third|
i'd be lying if i said i was pleased.
really, i expected better.
and yet, i also knew that, due to lack of time, my quilts
wouldn't ribbon higher because i simply don't custom quilt my own quilts very often.
also needs to be noted that i'm an over-achiever.
try to keep everything in balance, right??
congratulations to everyone who won ribbons!!
