Well The Mermaid Pulled First

Well, I guess I underestimated my work. The mermaid has won a First Place Blue Ribbon in the NC State Fair! I am speechless as far as taking first place.

If you make things you will understand my next statement. You never quite think you work is good. As you can see the flaws in the creation.

Dropped off an entry to the NC State Fair

I dropped off my entry to NC State Fair today. Not the one I was going to do since I have been unable to cut for the past 4 months so that will be next years entry once I finish it. I was excited to do the elephant  but alas it was not meant to be. So I am going with my Mermaid cutting. I enter for the fun of it.

So if you go to the NC State Fair look for it in Handicrafts and Hobbies. This year they have moved it from the old building by the grandstand to the Commercial Education building. It is the one where you usually find the indoor Flea Market during the year. The old location was overcrowded and it was always hard to see everything. Glad to see Handicrafts and Hobbies has grown enough to warrant a larger location. Though the new location has always been packed also with lots of other things.
