FO Friday: 2011 Fair entries are in (17)

The fair entries are in and now we wait for the results. I had planned to enter some baking, however with DH’s carless status, I didn’t want to impose on relatives to dive up to the fairgrounds a 2nd time to drop it off. I guess that will have to wait for next year.  Hope to get up this afternoon to see results. Sad to say that these are the worst results in over 20 years, oh well it is good to participate sigh…

    Awww! It’s always fun to participate in things like this. I was thinking of entering a skein of Candy Skein yarn this next year at the local fair as they have a new category for hand dyed!

      Go for it, it’s a great experience! I find it amazing to see everyone elses work. Once a year I gather up my treasures and put them out there. It is nerve wracking, but fun :0)
