Congratulations on your wonderful ribbons! Your stitching is just beautiful!

SUPERIOR...although I think I disagree with that Pumpkin one...the beading on the edge would/should of made that a 1st placer. Regardless you should be proud!

Congrats on all your great fair ribbons! I think if you'd entered in my county fair there would have been more blue ones. :) The fair ended Saturday and there were a few projects that received blue ribbons that I really wondered about, in particular a purchased throw with a Thomas Kincaid scene on it that had been slightly embellished with some charms. Could have blown me over with that one!

WOW!!! Your stitching is certainly deserving of the ribbons you won. I also love the way you displayed the buttons (gave me an idea!). I've enjoyed seeing all of your pretties and will certainly be back again!
