My Favorite Time of the Year

Fall. That wonderful time of the year when things are supposed to get cooler, the colors change into wonderful array of oranges, yellows, and reds. Inspiration at harvest time. Of course I find a lot of creativity at the state fair. Anything from painting and legos, to woodworking and gardening. How incredible to share in all of the artistry from people across my great state, North Carolina. A gathering of all skill levels in just about every kind of thing you can imagine. That is the basic definition of what the fair is. And I was proud to have put in 9 entries into what is my fourth year as a participant.  This year’s hard work paid off in a major way for me, as I will be bringing home on Monday 2 Blue (1st place) ribbons, a white (3rd place) ribbon and and honorable mention. There are no words to describe the joy that crochet brings to me. However  I  can say just how thankful I am that I get to join others in showing off that if you when you dedicate yourself to your passion and calling in life the rewards are endless!
