South Carolina State Fair

After watching the Tigers beat Maryland in Death Valley, with a tribute to CJ Spiller, we went to the South Carolina State Fair.  I love the State Fair.  I have been going since I was a child and try to never miss it!  This is year was special since I got a blue ribbon for a cross stitch piece that I had been working on for several years, yes years.  Side note I completed other projects in those years.  I have entered pieces in the Fair since 1997 and this is one of the few times I received a ribbon for in the adult division.  So here are some pictures from the State Fair.

I also love the flower show at the Fair, and Carter and Holmes Orchids in Newberry does a great job with their display.

Aren't they pretty? Will post pictures of my blanket as soon as I get some strips completed.

Happy Stitching!

Finishing Thoughts

I dropped off my entry for the State Fair today.  Fingers crossed the judges like my entry as much as I do.  Look for my piece when you go to the SC State Fair

My parents bought me a bookmark from Norway when they went in 2006.  I finally got to work on it one night will doing laundry.  It was an enjoyable little project, however I am not sure how to finish it.  The front of the package shows the ends unraveled, if you have worked on bookmarks help is appreciated!

And an update on Tinkerbell.
I am almost finished with Tinkerbell and not sure how to finish this one either.  I do mostly large projects and have them professionally framed.  So any suggestions and how-tos are appreciated!

Happy Stitching!
