Getting Ready for the County Fair

Well these girls are rockin' it! Getting their fair entries ready for the County Fair...They're finishing up their last minute stitches, refining their closures, making sure everything is clean and ready for judging. Our first picture here, is a Pocket Pillow Quilt on the machine getting quilted.  Below is some thread painting getting done on a little Lamb that will be stuffed.
Aren't they just special?

This is such a wonderful time of year where the children get to show their crafty loves and be proud of themselves! Intent on furthering their craft by seeing the judges remarks and making things better next year. Because as I tell them, "It's not all about winning." It's to help learn and improve ourselves for better tomorrows.

I like to think that the judges' remarks are just their opinions, but as we choose our future projects, we ultimately decide what our craft is and how our art turns out, with the judges opinions just a wee part in the back of our head, of which I'm so thankful for.

We hope that Everyone is enjoying their local County Fairs as much as we are!
