Spotted at the Fair

crocheted Christening Gown and Bonnet
August 2016
A gorgeous Christening gown and bonnet: I hope this will become a treasured heirloom for the crafter's family. I was thrilled to see it won a blue ribbon and a Champion ribbon for its Division.

a quilt with "heart"

A quilt with "Heart" in the 4-H building: the heart made the simple design even more powerful. I hope to copy the idea for a Quilt of Valor.

a fun array of pincushions

A variety of pincushions: a hat, doughnuts, chickens, a sewing machine, a slice of cake, and an owl with scissors for spectacles. They were cute and just plain fun!

  1. What a nice array of items. Everything is so nice. And some of those pincushions are just down-right silly/fun. We don't have any fairs like this in my neck of the woods (eastern PA)and I wish we did! There was a recent 4-H fair locally, but no real crafts (plus it was too blasted hot to go anyway).

  2. You're right - that christening gown will hopefully become a family heirloom. It's beautiful. The heart in that zig-zag design is a fun idea. Have fun at the fair. I love going to fairs, but haven't had a chance the past couple of years. Maybe this will be the year!

  4. The quilt pattern would be excellent for a quilt of valor.
    I enjoyed seeing the displays at my local fair, but didn't think to take photos. Thanks for sharing yours!

  5. Beautiful work on all of these. That christening gown is gorgeous. I go to our county fair pretty much only to see the handmade items like this. The craftsmanship always amazes me. Each year I think I'll put something in for the next fair and each year I forget!
    Blessings,
