No worries. It's judging day at the State Fair for the Fancy Work category, and several other categories, but I didn't enter those.
The Fancy Work category is the main heading and then it is divided into smaller categories which includes all of the sewing entries.
I mentioned the Fedora hat here. I was able to finish the second item to put in the fair. Another peasant dress with pocket and ruffle. It's bright and colorful, and a dress which means it's perfect for my girl.
I am pleased with how it turned out. I didn't get one of the chevron ruffle panels to match up, so it doesn't look like one continuous piece of fabric. We'll have to wait and see how it does.
I am sure the Girls Wear category for ages 3-5 has more entries and more competition versus the hat category so I am kind of anxious to see if it places or not.
They made their way to the State Fair via my wonderful husband who works close to the drop off location.
Previous State Fair photos: (the last two are from last year)
You can almost here the excitement of half-scared kids riding some of the rides. The smell of fried everything. The sounds of the carousel, and kids begging their parents to buy them candy apples or cotton candy.
I promise that she had a good time last year, even if it doesn't show.
She was hanging on to dear life on the carousel, and it hadn't even started to move yet. She did have a good time though.
I think the fair opens next week. The first day of the fair has a $1 entry fee...a good time to go without having to spend a lot. This year kids 5 and under get in free. Yea!! I can take the kids with me and only have to pay $1 for the three of us. They might even get to ride some rides again. And if the girl doesn't look happy in the photos I can almost guarantee that she will have a good time anyway.
Good luck to all of the participants who are getting judged today. Looking forward to the results.
