8 hours of needle felting.

1 hour of applique.

1 hour of rug hooking.

2 hours of sewing.

30 minutes of knitting.

30 minutes of weaving

30 minutes of crocheting.

2 hours of fussing.

5 hours of driving to N.Y.

30 minutes of picking hay off ( after I dropped it in the horse trailer) heads and faces.

5 minutes of walking very fast to building E to make the deadline for entry.

2 seconds of shock and heartbreak from the words " your too late, the competition is closed."

1 minute of disbelief.

1 minute of pleading.

1 kind and understanding judge .....equal one BLUE RIBBON!

Congratulations. I understand 1,000 percent why you won the blue ribbon. Can you give a few more details, like what was needle felted in and what was hooked? Did you hook with roving as well as wool? I love it!

Thanks everyone, I had this idea when I drove home from N.Y. last year. I am such a procrastinator though, that I left it to work on all summer and then got busy three weeks ago. I guess I work best under pressure!;)
