Greene County Fair Results

We entered most of the same items at the Greene County Fair as we did for Albemarle's. I didn't enter any veggies, though, and only entered the passion flower in horticulture. I forgot the doll's dress when I was packing our stuff up, but I did add these two items: I used a stencil to paint the scorpion on tile at the Paintin' Place, to give to Thomas, of course! And I finished this Cherished Teddies ("There's Room in My Sand Castle for You") cross-stitch just in time to enter it. I'd been working on it over several years, a stitch here, a stitch there. Finally done! A friend gave me the actual figurine years ago, and when I saw the cross-stitch pattern, I had to get it.
I found some more of Thomas's artwork to enter, also. There's a decoupage plaque that says "Thomas", a clay dog head--very hard to make out in the picture, and a copper-wire-and-wax palm tree sculpture. He made all these at Nini's art camp this summer.

So, what did we win? A lot of stuff! Here's the list:

Silvia, congratulations on your wins! I'm so delighted to learn about The Paintin' Place. We had a few pottery places back in St. Louis and we missed them sorely. The girl and I will definitely be making a trip to do some painting. Thank you!

Congrats! Sounds like y'all cleaned up at the county fair!

I don't have any idea what county fairs are like out your way, Laura, but the competition really wasn't that great--I don't mean the actual entries, just the low number of them. Lots of really nice things at both fairs this year!
