Are you going to our County Fair? Bunnies, dogs, a hydrant of wool....
Yep, my sis and I are not only going to the fair, but we entered lovingly hand-crafted bunnies and dogs for the Home & Hobby competitive exhibits. Specifically, we entered "sets" in the needle-felting division. (Oh, no wait - technically it's the needle-felting class, which is within the overarching "Felting" division, which is within the "Needle & Textile Arts" category.) Whatever it is - we want to win.
I've been wanting to enter something for years, and this year we are finally doing it. They wouldn't let us enter together - except for quilts, only one person's name can be on an entry - so we decided to each enter an item (even though we made both of them together). My sis entered our tableau of bunnies: (click on any pics if you want to see them bigger)

And I, of course, entered the dog park scene:
|We've got: a Schnauzie, beagle Bailey, a terrier-esque little guy, & a poodle-mix|
Here we are while it was all still work-in-process:
|A hot-glue gun is a crafter's best friend|
|"What are you doing, Auntie?"|
We had a little fun with the dog-park scene before finalizing it...

The San Diego County Fair starts June 8, and I think they said we can find out online the first day or 2 how we did. We WANT the blue ribbon. We will be satisfied with nothing less! (I don't remember exactly what I saw entered last year, but I remember thinking, "We could do better.") :)
The fair has a "Game on!" theme this year and you can win extra prize money for having the best entry that depicts the theme. Whaddya think?? We've got a ball and a beagle in a play-bow. How much more "game on" can you get??
|Game on, pooches!|
I'll let you know how we do. If we don't win, we shall be quite put out! (to quote Prince Humperdink, in The Princess Bride).
Sorry I was once again so WORDY on Wordless Wednesday!
