Fall Fair Time

This past weekend was our annual Fall Fair and we were lucky enough to have sunny, warm weather that was just perfect for it!

For as long as I've known her, Bonnie has always entered something in the fair, and for years she has been trying to convince the rest of us in our cross stitch group to do the same.  So, this year Anita and I decided to give it a whirl.  We hoped it would make Bonnie  quit bugging us very happy!  :^)

Anita won 2nd place on her pretty place mats she sewed, and 1st place (plus the special ribbon!) on her cross stitched biscornu!!

Way to go Anita!!



A biscornu is an 8 sided pincushion, and the word is derived from a French adjective meaning "skewed, quirky or irregular".


Flip it over and see the 4 little frogs and bumblebees... how cute!!


I was lucky enough to get 2nd on my cross stitch angel picture, 1st place on my Halloween wall hanging, and 1st place (plus special) on my Forest cross stitch picture!


Hopefully next year Jody will join in on the fun and enter some of her finished projects too.

Now what did Bonnie enter this year you ask? Absolutely nothing!!  Do you think maybe she was just a teeny tiny bit afraid of losing out to the rest of us??...  I don't think so!!  She actually joked to me and said she wondered if that's what people would be thinking when they saw that she didn't enter anything at all this year...

Gotta love small towns  :^)

Wonderful stitching and winning at the fair, Congratulations. Our crowd used to enter stitching in the Paris Fair EVERY YEAR and we always did very well too.
Glad the weather was nice for that coz there's something about a fall fair that deserves nice fall warmness.
Be always in stitches.
