Deerfield fair 2013 / fresh sewing day

2013 Deerfield Fair collage

Can it be that the Deerfield Fair has come and gone so quickly? 

Most of the things I entered have been on the blog before: Rainbow Geese, Sashiko Pillow, Baby Hungry Caterpillar, and Improve Curves Table Runner all won blue {1st place} ribbons.  The only needlecraft item I entered that hasn't been on the blog before is also somehow the only thing I didn't get a picture of.  You'll just have to trust me that it also got a blue ribbon  ;)       {when I get it back I'll take pictures and post it properly.  In the meantime, you can admire the pink tractor instead}

Underneath the red second place ribbon up there in the collage is a plate of pumpkin biscotti.  Lesson learned - baking in the dark while trying a brand new recipe for a competition probably won't get you a blue ribbon, but the results are still good dipped in coffee.  ;)

My boys brought home their fair share of ribbons, too.  Son #1 earned a 2nd and 3rd for his photographs, son #2 earned a 1st for his pumpkin face and a 2nd for his snickerdoodle cookies, and son #3 earned a 1st for his pumpkin face and a 1st for his peanut butter cookies.

The four of us got our fried Oreo fix, and I found a new food love - chocolate covered bacon.  Oh my, it was heavenly!

Congratulations on all of your ribbons. I think the Improv curves is my favourite bit.

I have a blue ribbon winning friend. I feel like a name dropper. I'm going to tweet this. :)
