October Mid-Month KAL

I just finished the latest KAL! I love this one. I haven't made any other cloths like it, but I think it's a beautiful pattern! I'm not thrilled about how the variegated yarn did, but I've come to expect that. :)

Fair Entries

Here are the results of my entries in the state fair! Awhile back I had posted pictures of the things I entered. My mom had sent in the form while I was gone, and she had forgotten to tell me she had entered 2 more things! (The whole thing was kind of last minute, so we hadn't had a lot of time to decide.) So, besides the wreath cloth and purse set, I also entered a baby blanket I had made, and the Heart Quilt dishcloth. Naturally, once we got to the fair, the first thing we did was go to the Hobbies and Crafts building to see if my brothers and I had won a ribbon. I was really excited, a little nervous, but having fun! My youngest brother won a 5th place ribbon for his origami, and a 2nd place ribbon for his mobile, and my other brother (2 years younger than I am) won a 1st place ribbon for his leather craft! The wreath didn't win, (neither did the blanket, which was in another building) the purse set won 5th place, and the heart quilt won 2nd! I was really excited! I can't wait until next year!

October KAL

I've just finished the KAL for October! This month it was a fireman's hat and axe. I finished just in time, too, as we're going out of town for the weekend.

State Fair entries.

This month is our State Fair, and I'm entering 2 things this year. I've never entered anything before, and unfortunately, I'm in the professional category. I'm entering a purse set, my favorite one I've made. It's for a girl and her doll, and they are exactly the same, except the doll purse is smaller and has a smaller daisies for the border and thinner handles. I'm also entering a dishcloth I designed, and just finished today. It's called "Christmas Wreath". Like I said, I'm in the professional category, so I'm not expecting to win any ribbons! I think it will be fun having them where people can see them. I'll let you know the results, but it won't be for awhile! We have to take them on Monday.
