OK, so please forgive me for what may seem like bragging, but I'm just so pleased!
It's Fair time again and this year I finally achieved a long-held goal: BEST OF SHOW for tatting at the Iowa State Fair!! :)
This was my only blue ribbon this year, but I also received a 2nd place (red) on my bookmark,
I also got third place (white ribbon) for my stupid and frustrating handkerchief edging (I am SO excited to see the written feedback on that!) and fourth (pink) on that white collar.
All-in-all, happiness abounds. :)
