So how did my five entries do? I was dying to find out, and since my office closed early today in honor of Old Spanish Days in Santa Barbara, I was home by mid afternoon. My mom and I caught a ride from my dad instead of fighting the traffic to the parking lot, and once we paid for our tickets, headed for the Home Arts building. I spied one of my entries right from the door, hanging up on the far wall, and we scurried to see whether it had a ribbon.
Although the hideous fluorescent lighting turned the Baby Houndstooth to green and pink rather than its true brown and raspberry, the red ribbon sticker meant it earned a second place award. Nice! Further searching brought us to the Chevron Tablerunner. I may never have shown it finished on the blog.
A lovely blue ribbon was attached to the runner. DD Erica wondered why they put a rock on top of it. Good question I had no answer to! It took a while to locate the fourth entry, but finally we spotted it in the farthest glass case along the opposite wall.
Another blue! Very exciting! (Sorry for the reflection of my legs and shoes from the glass) The hunt for the fifth entry was high and low but we did locate it at last in an entirely Halloween-themed booth.
Another blue sticker on the entry tag! What fun it was to share the excitement of the hunt with this cowgirl:
