Well, I picked up my items from the Southeast Idaho State Fair yesterday! I am still overwhelmed at winning five out of five ribbons!!!! This is the first time I have ever entered anything in to a state fair. Many thanks to my hubby for "insisting" that I enter something!!!!
I made this last year, 2014; my mother painted all her life, so I took one of my favorite beach pictures; photographed it, and printed it on fabric. I then crazy quilted and embellished around it. It took 4th place in Hand Embroidery/Wall Hanging category!
Made in 1999, Evening Star Designs pattern and cq fabrics; Purple velvet is from a recycled bathrobe. Entered in East Idaho State Fair, 2015; category: from recycled materials; 4th place.
Entered in the East Idaho State Fair, 2015 in Bags, Clutch, crazy quilted category, 4th place! Made in 2001!
I started cq in 1997; had only done a few stockings, when I made this in 1998! Entered in East Idaho State Fair, 2015; category: hand embroidered clothing, vest; Took 1st place, prize $5.
Here are some close ups:
Well, you can bet, I will be entering again next year!!!! Thanks for visitng, and keep stitchin'!!!!
