The Frederick County county fair is the oldest in the country, and this year they are celebrating their sesquicentennial (that’s 150 years!) My husband pointed out that September of 1862 was also when the battles of Antietam and South Mountain were fought – and that was just a few miles away. Wow.
The reason I’m writing about the fair is that I submitted one of my pieces last Saturday. Elizabeth and I did a craft show that day (she was selling some earrings and notecards she had made, and did quite well). A customer suggested that I try putting some of my work at the fair, and after the show ended, I zipped on over. I brought the piece I did of my neighbor’s barn in the winter.
Tonight Terry stopped by the fair after work (spent 30 minutes just looking for a parking spot) and snapped this photo of my work for me.
Second place! Whoo – hoo! 🙂
