Today I had to go pick up my things--and I found I had won a ribbon: "Outstanding Exhibit" for my long vest!
I also won $5, which was in a little envelope taped to the ribbon :-)
I showed the ribbon to the boys. "What does it mean?" asked Eli. "I'm not sure," I said. "I'll have to ask Karen. I think it may mean my vest was the best of the whole division, which was "needlework" and included crochet, knitting, embroidery, crewel, and tatting (!)
Here are my other items: another vest made of size 3 thread, earrings, and a scarf with a pretty stitch pattern. Maybe the blue stickers on some of the tags mean something, too.
I'm just glad I got to show off how cool and hip crochet can be.
