More state fair photos, but this time of actual cross stitch....
This was Maya's entry into the fair. She is nine this year and this was her first cross stitch. I helped her finish it into a pillow, but she actually did all the stitching herself. She won a blue ribbon again this year. Last year she had sewn a Hello Kitty purse out of felt/yarn and got a blue ribbon too.
These are some of the other state fair entries in cross stitch that were my favorites....
Another Mirabilia "Halloween Fairy". I loved seeing this one in person, I had been eyeing the chart already.
This one was not just cross stitching but a lot of black-work embroidery too (is it still called black-work if it is in different colors?)
This one was a crocheted blanket that had cross stitching on each of the squares. It was in youth division, which makes me wonder how old this talented stitcher was.
Not cross stitch, but I loved this miniature trailer. The outside of it was corrugated cardboard. I loved all the tiny details inside of it too.
And just a cute small to finish with. I normally am not a fan of chickens, but this one was too cute.
