A Fair-ly Good Day

Today was my day to work the Guild's booth at the Ventura County Fair. Nona designed and built our booth, which took a BLUE RIBBON! Yeah, Nona!
I volunteered for the first day because I thought it would be less crowded than later in the week - and to check on my entries. I'm a tad bit impatient (ok, a *lot* impatient) and knew I couldn't wait until later in the week to see how I'd faired. (sorry)

Since this was the first time in 20+ years that I'd entered items, I was really unsure how I'd do. And I was thrilled to find this: and this: and these: and an Honorable Mention for my handspun. I'm really pleased with this ribbon; I've only been spinning for a year and there was some strong competition in this category.
Plus two firsts, a second,
and two honorable mentions for my scrapbook pages. Out of the 13 items I entered, I took home 11 ribbons. Not bad for a beginner!

Congratulations! It is fun, isn't it? I'm entered in the L.A. County Fair for the third year and can hardly stand to wait till September to find out how I did!

Glad you did well!
