Burlington County Fair Fun with my family8:12 PM
As I admired the projects, one of the friendly volunteers chatted with me and told me the most wonderful(for me) news: You don't have to live in BURLINGTON COUNTY to enter! Note: There are other contests to the fair which are restricted to BURLCO residents, so you will have to read the rules carefully should you choose to enter.
So, the following year, I entered 2 pieces, a shawl which earned 1st prize and a 2nd prize for a sweater. I found out you could submit any thing you haven't submitted before.
In 2014, I entered 7 projects, and earned 2 blue ribbons. I also won a 2nd place for a photo of a preying mantis on a flower. My husband also entered photography, and won.
Last year, I entered 9 projects, earning 2 blue ribbons. My husband won another blue ribbon for photography. My sons entered, too. My little guy won a blue ribbon. What a disappointment for Tommaso, the only one who didn't have a blue ribbon in the family.
This year, however, was Tommaso's year. We all entered several items and he is the only one in the family who earned 1st place! What delight on his face seeing those blue rosettes!
A humbling year for me, but after all you can't win them all.
Here are the Tommaso's entries:
And a little silliness for all of us:
