I Won 1st Place at the County Fair!

Yesterday I took Dyllan to the OC Fair to se how my fair entries did.
We met up with a friend to watch her little girl dance and then to get Dyllan a all you can ride wristband for up to 8pm. Dyllan and I got to the fair about 1:30pm and left at 9:30pm.
He rode rides and played games for 6 solid hours!
He won (all by himself) a large dinosaur, a fluffy white bear, a cute monkey and a light sword. I won 2 (cute) plush fish.
We ate before we came (wise move) and snacked on home brought fruit, snacks and free hand outs- like motts apple juice and apple sauce!
Near the end when we were getting ready to leave I did buy us some ginormous onion rings...delish!
Even though the day was all about Dyllan, we went to see how my entries did. My crazy quilt (above) placed Honorable mention! That's like 4th place! It's my 1st crazy quilt and I completed it in 3 days! It almost never my Mother in Laws memorial got moved back a week and my time was spent getting the house ready for new appliances and my trip. Plus I could not use a machine...the premise was to completely hand sew it! It is 25"x33" and I was still sewing on the day it needed to be delivered.
I'm looking forward to adding some extra details to the quilt when I get it back before hanging up in my studio.

Faerie Tiara
I completely hand wire wrapped this tiara. Every little detail was all wire wrapped from the pearls to the itty bitty beads.

I'm REALLY excited with how this came out! And happy the judges loved it!

This piece won 1st place and Division winner!
Right next to the tiara at the fair is a big "fluffy" yellow ribbon!

I can't wait to go back in early August with Brian and Dyllan...this way I can leisurely walk around (on my own).... :)
