Central Florida Fair Projects update :I WON 3 Ribbons !!
Central Florida Fair Entries
With encouragement from my "Knit of Knot" guild, I entered these things in the Central Florida Fair in Orlando. The shawl is "Gulls Over the Bay" from "Ocean Breezes" by Sheryl This. (wave edge stitch pattern and gull wings pattern) The felted bag with the flower is the bubble bag (I think that is what it is called) with a few changes from "Personalities" by ??? and the beaded bag is a pattern from a class I took with Judy Pascale. The shells on the bag are from a "Girls at the Beach" outing with my Granddaughters.
The shawl is made from Cotton Woven Ribbon from Blue Heron Yarns (100% cotton). The felted purse is also a Blue Heron yarn. They (Blue Heron) were in the central Florida area about a year ago doing "shows" at yarn stores and at the end of their tour they came to our guild meeting with mountains of wonderful yarn and sold it to us at 1/2 or more price. It just so happened they had the exact yarn called for in the book for the shawl.
Thanks everyone for your encouragement.
The lace shawl is stunning. I love the color and the clasp you added it beautiful. The bags are really neat, I especially like the one with all the shells on it. It is so unique. Beautiful bougainvillea as well.
