Red Ribbon Day

Exciting news, friends. I won Second Prize at the Oregon State Fair!

I entered my HarVest Design into the "Original Item by Designer" competition. Unfortunately, Mr. Jones and I didn't make it to the State Fair this year (like we did last year). But when I picked up my entry here in Portland, the woman reached into the paper bag with my name on it, pulled it out to confirm it was mine, and squealed "Ooh, there's a ribbon on it, Congratulations!". I then squealed with her.

Second prize not only gives me something to aspire to for next time, the red ribbon matches the vest so nicely, I might never take it off!

You can make your own HarVest, by following the instructions right here.
