The entry form is filled out! A girl at work convinced me to enter my baskets in the Arts & Crafts competition.
She's a cross-stitcher, and she's entering her pieces too. I never would have entered without her though, because she lives near there and she said her hubby LOVES to go there personally for a "behind-the-scenes" look (he'll hand-deliver and pick up our entries -- safely, I hope!).
You can enter up to 5 classes, so here's what I chose:
Basketry, from a commercial source: Carolina Apple Basket, from a pattern by Lynn Siler
Basketry, original: "Julia's Spring Try-Out". Lidded ginger-jar shaped basket in natural, smoked, and dyed reeds, with woven tulips.
Miniatures: My wasp-waisted "Jewel Vase" waxed linen basket in spring colors
Fiber Techniques, Fine Arts: "Jewel Tray" waxed linen basket in autumn colors
and, just for kicks, I also entered the Fiber Techniques, Wearable: "Sea glass window-pane" pendant necklace, of plaited, twined, and braided waxed linen around a piece of found "sea glass".
I'll let you know how I do.
