mission accomplished


Freeform Jacket Awarded Blue Ribbon

Two different patterns, altered by me, come together to create this sweater set that was worn at the CGOA Fashion Show. Awarded Blue Ribbon and BEST OF SHOW!

The dress I created for my daughter to wear at the Fashion Show was awarded a Red Ribbon (2nd Place). And two side notes here:
1. The coordinator said she was tickled to see crochet get BEST OF SHOW. She said it had been a "long, long time since Crochet won this honor."

2. My crochet work did generate interest. I have some phone calls & emails to write. Mission Accomplished! {{Big Grins}}

Congratulations, Dee.  I knew that sundress for Casey would get a ribbon.  Awesome!
Best of Show.  Wow!  Doesn't that feel good?  I got a Best of Show on a crocheted afghan 2 years ago.  Note - Best of Show at County, didn't even get an honorable mention at State show.
Again, Congratulations!

Congratulations Dee, and to your daughter as well.  The jacket looks beautiful!  Can't wait to see it.  Maybe you'll wear it to Prudence's workshop.
