County Fair . . .
Hot. Hotter. Hottest.
July weather at its finest.
Often a precursor to the state fair.
Competition. Livestock. 4H. FFA. Races. Concerts. Demolition Derbies. Tractor Pulls.
Food. Anything and Everything.
Exhibits and Competition.
I entered a Quilt of Valor in the Quilting Division. Here’s how it looked. The display is off a bit for the flag. The stars belong on the left. It’s a mixed media entry with appliqued stars, stitched stripes and two colors in the binding. My first applique.
I wasn’t ever in 4H as I grew up. I’ve never competed in a competition at a county fair before.
Check out the ribbon this quilt won.
Cash value = $3.00
Not all entries won a prize.
What fun! Entering the open quilting class
at the county fair.
What competition have you been in lately? How did you fare?
What goal setting have you done personally? Have you competed against yourself? What did you learn about yourself?
