    I know it is just a local county fair - but - I gotta brag!!!!

    The silly part is that everyone gets a blue 1st place ribbon!!!
    That is everyone but me on my crazy quilt, it only got a second place. Everything else got the blue ribbon along with whatever other ribbons. Weird!!

    I asked about that this morning when I took my stuff in and was told that you get the blue ribbon just for the effort of making it and bringing it in.


    Thanks for looking

    Okay, gotta ask....VCR tape purses? Where did you get such an idea? I'm a librarian, we have so many VCR tapes to toss out it's crazy. Maybe if I make one or two and show them to the kids, some of the craftier ones might give it a whirl. I'd gladly give them the tapes. PS Love that baby ball. I have one, but I thought it was a pin cushion! Each section has a different type of pin. That way all my pins are close but not mixed up. The grandkids love to separate them--except the one who like to mix them up! You have lots of talent and interests. Good going.

    I think I saw it on the internet someplace. Just someone mentioning crochet with VCR tape so I tried it.

    I just make up the pattern as I go. It is really hard to put a lining in because you have nothing really to sew to.

    The black & silver one that won reserve grand champion is the only one with a lining. I sewed it in by hand very carefully going around strands of tape and not sewing thru them.
