County Fair Results

Well no "Best of Show" this year but I did get (3) "1st Place" Ribbons on these! So, here is:

"Beauty and the Beast"

Close up to show the nice straight lines! I ripped out the seams on three rows until I got it right! Quilted all up nice by my friend Irene Hensley. I used "Another Iota" by Robert Kaufman. It makes a great binding!

"Sophie's Twister"

Lastly, I submitted a jar of yummy "Pineapple Jam" that I forgot to take a picture of the night I dropped everything off. Thank you all for indulging me while I showed off.

I really encourage you to show your beautiful creations in your local fairs. It validates your work and makes you feel good inside. Thank you for stopping by "In The Boon Docks" Lisa


  1. Woooooooooooooooooooooooo Congratulations! You 1st place winner you....wait I see no cake and party celebrations...=P

  2. WooHoo!!! Congratulations...County fairs are lots of fun. Lots of memories of when I was in 4-H, my kids in 4-H, and I was a leader..Memories.

  3. I have never tried canning pineapple jam before. It sounds so good!

  4. Congratulations Lisa! Think back to the time we went to Pungo and picked strawberries and then came back and made jam. So now we can go to Hawaii and pick pineapples and then make jam?
