    Overwhelemed

    I sew for myself and others but not really for competition. I have entered some competition just to get my name out and about to help pick up some new business......but I entered 5 things in the state fair and got two 1st place ribbons and two 2nd place ribbons. I was really amazed and excited. If i can get them to post i'll post some pictures of them.

    The Women of Courage quilt (browns) got a 1st place, the Blue/Yellow stack and wack got a 2nd place, the blue swirl table runner got 1st and the vest got 2nd. I was very surprised.

    Congratulations on winning your ribbons. Your work is beautiful.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    wow nice work and CONGRATS
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    Hurray for you!!!! I don't know what the competition was, but those look like winners to me.

    BTW I also sew mainly for my own pleasure, but I have a goodly share of blues also. I urge people to enter shows. Especially ones with open judging, so you hear what the judge has to say. It can improve the quality of your work.

    You deserved the awards. The quilts are lovely.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
