Sorry to take so long in updating. Not only has it been an extremely busy week, but I'm now dealing with the loss of a dear, sweet friend of mine. Last night, she lost her earthly battle with stage-4 colon cancer. She was 31 years young & left behind a loving husband & 3 young children. She is now dancing at the feet of our Heavenly Father, and even though I will miss her, I would not wish her back to all the pain & sickness she has been dealing with.
OK - on to news of the fair:
The entries were WAAAAAYYYY down this year - as in mine was the ONLY crocheted afghan entered this year! The rule is if there is only one entry in a category, the entry automatically gets 2nd place. But, they loved my entry & went ahead & gave me a blue ribbon. Again, all the entries were way down this year. Even the quilt entries were maybe 1/4 of what is usually entered. Not sure if it's because it was so late this year or what, but it was very sad. Hopefully, the entries will be much better next year.
