What are you most proud of? That I actually started and finished the project in time to enter it in the fair, and I'm pretty proud that it actually turned out looking like what I had initially envisioned.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Well, if you haven't picked up on the point I was trying to make throughout these descriptions, it is this: Allow yourself plenty of time when making a project for a special event.

Beautiful design and how appropriate with the selection. Good luck. I think it is a winner!

Thank you so much, but in retrospect, this one is a bit over the top even for me!

Your work is always beautiful but this one also tells a story. I love it.

Thank you. I think the story is that I should have begun it sooner!

Our family took its annual outing to the County Fair and I was pleased to see that my Blue Crab Statement took 3rd prize (out of 8 entries) in the Beaded Jewelry class. This class also includes seed bead projects, which are often so beautifully intricate and complex that I just cannot compete on that level. 1st and 2nd prizes were awarded to a seed bead necklace and bracelet respectively.
