Last month I mentioned to a neighbor that I was entering some of my work into the annual "Showcase of the Arts" here. She asked if I was entering my quilts or my art. "My photos!" I said. She was a little upset for me that I wasn't putting my sewing out there.
I went back to Prairieland Park just before they closed last night to pick up my entries. The show is all done. And much to my surprise, I walked in to find this!!
Isn't that just meant to be that the photo that gets the ribbon is the one I took of my threads for the My Sweet Prairie logo! I was pretty honored about that. It brings my photography and my sewing full circle in a sense.
So I packed up my things and drove home. I couldn't stop having my mind blank out about the fact that some of my most poorly graded photos are planned to be the focus of my next project!! (O M G). What can you do but laugh, shake it off and move forward. I know potential when I see it. ; )
And as I walked to our door with my big flashy green "ribbon from the fair", I couldn't help but feel like a little girl in 4-h that had the best cow. hehehe In the end, my boys were very proud of their mama. : )
