Please do post photos of all your entries!! I have thought of entering something in the Fair but I never seem to get things done in time. Good luck!!

Yes, I have a digital camera (now) and have a photobucket account (now). When the entries are back, I'll get some shots and figure out how to post them. If the opportunity is there to exhibit, go for it. Several of my stitching friends (Thread Heads) enter stuff for fun. Not only are the ribbons pretty -- the cash premiums are great. Never mind figuring out why the judges pick the stuff they award ribbons for. That is a hoot.
