Thanks to everyone that has supported me along the way! I hope everyone had a terrific Iowa State Fair. My fair challenge officially ended today when I went with the family to pick up all the ribbons and entries needing to be collected (and comment cards).
I do promise that I will post the winning recipes. I will work on those later this week along with a detailed account of how the fair went. I apologize that I haven't blogged during the fair but between soggy basements, finishing projects and making sure my boys had the attention they needed I haven't had a lot of time.
Just a few highlights -- 100 entries was achieved on the last Friday of the ISF with some floriculuture design entries! All told I had a 32% rate on ribbons/placing (yes, 32 ribbons from 100 entries). I am actually pretty excited about that number. OK - Alan had 50% (1 placing out of 2 entries) - still.

Hmm, tonight sounds like a good night to take it easy and start a new cross stitch project (a new pattern I ordered just arrived in the mail last week)!
