I don’t know how I can be happy and disappointed at the same time, but I am. I’m happy because I won Grand Champion and Reserve Champion!! I’m disappointed because I was mostly competing against myself.
I ended up with blue (Superior), red (Excellent), green (also Excellent – ?) and white (Good) ribbons. I also got a blue rosette (Grand Champion?) and a pink rosette (Reserve Champion?).
Here are pics of my stuff on display:
Debbie doily (far left) – Red / Excellent
Sashay doily – Green / Excellent
Yellow Rose Doll – Blue / Superior & pink rosette
Seaside Beret – White / Good
Princely Dragontail Scarf – Blue / Superior
Angel Doily – Blue / Superior
April 1st Cowl (green, next to the red scarf, which isn’t mine) – Green / Excellent
Pink Pineapple – White / Good
The cute monkeys on the right – and the sweet doll on the left in the other pic – aren’t mine.
Gathering Leaves Shawl (far right) – Red / Excellent
Extravagant Doily – Blue / Superior & blue rosette – this was in a separate display cabinet from the other Needle Arts entries and with other blue rosette winners, so I figure this is what earned Grand Champion.
As I write this, I think I’ve identified one reason why I’m disappointed. I didn’t get to share this with the redneck. He’s won Grand Champion in BBQ cook offs, so he would’ve understood how cool it is to win this, even though it’s crocheting and not cooking dead animals. 🙂
