I've never entered anything I've made in any type of competition, so I was a little reluctant when the spouse suggested I put something in our county fair.
My two little items did well though, so perhaps next year I'll make an effort to do something bigger. There weren't a ton of entries in either knitting or crochet, so competition wasn't exactly stiff, but it was a nice feeling to get a first place ribbon. And the grand prize winner? A crocheted evening dress for a Princess Diana doll - nicely crafted, and sentimental too.
