And the Winner Is...

I had fun last week entering some of my work in the Columbia County Fair. I was able to enter in several different categories: Hobbies, Textiles, and Sculpture. 
Here's a photo of everything I entered, prize ribbons atached.

I got the high-point award in the Sculpture category with these soft-sculptures. I received a special plaque and some award money donated by Michael Curry Design, a local (large) puppet-making company.

Thanks! I'm already scheming about what to enter next year!

Sherwood Art in the Park

This weekend I'll be participating in the Sherwood Art in the Park wine and art festival. It's a 2-day event benefitting Wild Cat Haven, a rescue refuge for wild cats. It will be my first time doing an event like this. I'm excited to be part of the wine & art crowd! Also looking forward to doing a festival on the grass in a park, rather than setting up on a sloped, concrete street. And amazingly enough, it actually looks like we'll be having a real, sunny (dare I say "hot"?) weekend!

I'll have my special helper!
