First Prize






















I was floored when I learned that this little dolly of mine won First Prize in the Stuffed Doll or Animal category at our local Fall Fair.

Like the man said "It's déjà vu all over again". This is the second time in my life that I've been honoured with a red ribbon. The first time was almost 50 years ago when I took first place in a sprint competition at our grade school field day event. I was very proud of myself back then and after that, I never went on to do another athletic thing. This time, for not being so proud, I hope the sewing gods will continue to shine on me.

INGA!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS on winning top honors.... Certainly a well deserved decision! she is beautiful... The Fairs are such fun aren't they?
