I so did not expect that...at all! First AND judge's choice! I think that was my best and biggest surprise of my prizes.
I got three judge's choice ribbons in all, that, my Lord's Prayer cross-stitch (which I didn't expect, I wouldn't have picked it!), and my lemon bars in the adult section.
The rest of the results:
Spice pound cake-youth
Ribbon yarn scarf-y
Woven ribbon pillow-y
Strawberry jam-y (I also won the prize from Ball canning company, because it looked nice, and I used their jars)
So I'm pretty happy!
Mom did well on her things too, especially cross-stitch and layer cakes. She also got a first on a depression glass pitcher that she entered, my depression glass bowl didn't get anything!
Dad got first on his b&w photo, and third on his color photo...which was really cool, and he should have gotten higher...
Poor little Colin didn't get anything on either his drawing or lego construction. His lego really should have gotten something, the thing that won third wasn't anywhere near as good as his! But luckily he's not old enough yet to really care about whether he won anything or not, so he was just happy to see his things displayed at the fair!
Next year though, I need to work on more craft things throughout the year, you get more on those because they take more time, and very few people take the time to do anything like that anymore. Next year's my last year to compete in the youth section, where I'm competing with the half-dozen other teenagers in W-S that still do "un-cool" things like baking and crafts! :-) (Including one guy who keeps beating me in the baking...I mean, what does he think he's doing?) In the adult category I'll be competing with the older ladies who have tons of time on their hands! And I'm actually not feeling too faired-out this year, so it shouldn't be too hard to get back to working on stuff. Usually I'm sick of crafts and baking for six months or so, and busy the other five, and don't get anything much done early. I do need to work on school, I would like to finish sometime!
There's a special chocolate cake contest tomorrow that Mom and I are entering, so we'll be working on that tomorrow. The special contests are sponsored by various companies, and this one's sponsored by local attorneys, and the prizes are $300, $125, $75...so I'm not sure how many people might be entering! And we're might have trouble finding a place to park, Wake Forest University's homecoming game is tomorrow and the stadium's right across from the fairgrounds...so that might be a bit of a headache. And speaking of headaches, I'll have one tomorrow if I don't get to bed...and I've already got a nice sunburn on my face from being outside today...
