State Fair Judging Results

We picked up our entries from the fairgrounds yesterday as well as a handful of ribbons. Yay! As usual, the things I think are winners get nothing and the ones I think are just so-so, are the ones that come home with awards.

Here's the list of winners:
Bread and Butter Pickles--1st place
Apple Jelly--2nd Place
Grape (muscadine-wild grape)--2nd Place
Strawberry Jelly--2nd Place
Blueberry Jam--2nd Place
Purse--2nd Place

Apron--2nd Place

Girls Wear (dress)--2nd Place

Pillow--1st Place

We also had the great pleasure of meeting our state fair hero, a charming lady who enters literally dozens of categories and wins in lots of them. Miss Dorothy was there picking up her entries, an all day task for her, and we happened to see her cart and recognized some of her work. She was just as sweet and friendly as I had pictured. My son was thrilled to meet her and couldn't wait to tell his big sister about meeting Miss Dorothy.

Time to get started on next year's projects!
