Trip to the Fair
Posted by thedarwinexception on August 6, 2008
So I went to pick up my award yesterday at the fair. The SECOND Edna Hill “Most Beautiful Knitted Layette” I’ve won in as many years. Woo Hoo.
I asked the lady at the fair how many years in a row I could win this thing before they kicked my ass out of the competition altogether – and she said there were no limitations on how many years I could win it. So let the knitting for next year begin!
In addition to the Edna Hill award, the red set also won a blue ribbon, as did the booties and the pink sweater – so there’s some encouragement. Plus I entered another, adult sweater, and that also won a blue ribbon. As soon as I “present” the recipient of the adult sweater with the sweater, I’ll post a picture of it.
But, here’s a picture of the red set on the “Edna Hill Award for 2008” table. Some of the other Edna Hill award winners are visible, as well. Some nice stuff, too.
Here are the booties – surrounded by other fair entries.
Here is the pink sweater:
Oh – and here is my certificate. I have to get it framed and hang it next to LAST year’s certificate!
And while I was at the fair waiting for the ceremonies to begin, I snapped some pictures of the quilts. God, the quilts are GORGEOUS. I don’t know who made the ones I took pictures of, but they are uber-talented people. I can’t believe the level of talent these people have.
Look at this “crazy quilt”. To die for, I swear.
One of my favorites:
LOVE the purple one here
Love the pieced quilt on the left.
I need to get better at quilting. I always get so inspired when I see these quilts at the fair. But as much as I love to quilt, I am nowhere near the level these people are at.
I’ll stick with knitting, for now.
