GRAND CHAMPION

I am sooooo excited. I entered two pieces of needlework in the Yuma County Fair this year.
Result:

Over my right shoulder is Crystal Tree with my first Grand Champion Ribbon.Over my head is the bottom of Celtic Banner with my second Grand Champion Ribbon.

One Grand Ribbon is best overall in cross stitch and the second is best overall in needlework. I found this out last night and I'm still grinning this morning.
