County Fair Results and Patriotic Basket

Here are the results of the pieces I took to the Ramsey County Fair.

This is Quaker Rose by Stickideen Von der Wiehenburg which took 1st place,

The next two are I pledge by La D Da, and Free and Brave by Drawn Thread.

Shepherd's Bush Stocking and a Little House Needlework ornie.

Here are Betsy's tart by Plum Street Samplers and another LHN piece called with Liberty and Justice that I made into a pillow.

So all in all I entered 7 pieces, won five 1st place ribbons and two 2nd place ribbons.
Not to bad.  Now I am off to another county fair next week.

My friend Jackie and I stitched this pattern by Manni Di Donna called Patriotic Days.
Then yesterday we finished them into these baskets.  They turned out so cute.

My basket is the one with the blue lining and Jackie's is of course the other one.
Now we have a fob and floss tag to finish which goes with these baskets.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stitching.
