Our county fair starts tomorrow!
Today, I helped award ribbons to the junior needlework and household items.

This piece of indigo tie-dye was very nicely done! [Using a purchased pillow case.]

The junior building had several categories. Here, home canning is winning ribbons.

Junior baked goods being judged....with the hot afternoon sunshine coming in the door!

An area near us with any type of creative item....lots of tie-dye T-shirts and decorated bird houses.

There were a few entrants in traditional needlework. This is a piece of Swedish embroidery done by a 12 year-old. VERY NICE!

Most things were more basic, lots of simple throw pillows made in 4-H clubs.

And my least favorite "needlework"....the ubiquitous double sided fleece throws which are fringed and tied together. Still, they are cuddly and warm!

Hi Lila!
I love county fairs! Ours is October (I think). There is so much to do and see, not to mention the talent. My favorites are the quilts and baked goods:)
Hope you are enjoying your Summer!!

Looks like a fun place to be! So many talented young people! I know it's hot there...hard to imagine needing fleece to cuddle up in! Enjoy your week! ♥

County fairs are such fun. I haven't been to one in quite some time. That needlework done by the 12 year old is's nice to see traditions carried on by the younger generations.

What fun to judge crafts. All I get to do is grade papers!
