"Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least." ~Goethe~

All entries to the fair were picked up the other day.  The girls were quite happy to see how they did being that we didn't actually go to the fair this year to check it out first hand.  We were so proud of them.  They were both grinning ear to ear.  

Miss Em got 1st place on a poem she entered, 2nd place on both blankets.  The quilt received Best Quilt in the Youth/4H division for being visually interesting and having complex piecing and the afghan got a Special Award for use of color and pattern used.

Miss B got 3rd place for her hand sewn sheep.  She squealed quite loud when she saw her ribbon.  Everyone standing around in the Youth area got a big kick out of her.

All ribbons have now found a new home in each of their rooms so they can be stared at as much as need be.

Plans are now being made for next year.  Nothing like being prepared.
