Last week (for the very first time) I entered five items in our local County Fair. 
I won four ribbons!  One blue, two red, and one white. 

Sadly my Hexies by Halves Quilt did not win anything, but that particular category (pieced, machine quilted, lap/throw size) had a lot of entries.  A local group of ladies who get together a couple times of week had all been working on entries for that category.  (Never mind that my quilting on that one had a couple of little puckers on the back.) 
Now that I know more about what's going on (not only had I never entered before, it's been about ten years since I've even been to the fair!) I'll be better prepared for next year.  Plus I have a whole year to make things and decide what to enter.  I've really only been at this a few months you know!
I was very happy for my first ribbons. 
And my mom loved the purse (today is her birthday!)
You can find the booties and similar purses and baskets in my Etsy Shop, along with many other items!
