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!


  1. Congratulations Carrie! We didn't make it this year...hate I didn't get to see your piece in person! Can't wait to see what you stitch next. Hope to see you again at the next stitch-in in Manning.

  2. Woohoo - congrats on your awesome winning piece! Lovely!
