OC Fair 2019

The fair ended a month ago. I’ve been busy, got sick, and my phone went kaput. Plus, I didn’t win this year. I didn’t even get an honorable mention. After seeing the other entries in person, I can tell that the judges were attracted to farm theme items only. In addition, whoever displayed my camping scene just randomly threw it down in the display.

I was embarrassed by anyone who saw it to be honest. One of the logs was sitting on the bench. The clothes line was attached to the back of the trailer. The back of the trailer was displayed forward. The rug is upside down. Ugh.

Funny, cause when I handed it to the staff it was displayed perfectly. They also managed to rip the fire off the fire pit somehow. You can’t tell by looking at it other than a loose strand cause it is sitting where it belongs, but yeah it was pulled apart. I try to imagine a scenario where that would even happen and the only thing I can come up with is that they let a child play with it before it got put in the display case.

I’m trying not to be a sore loser, but the manhandling of my items and the inconsistencies in judging have left a sour taste in my mouth. I don’t know if I’ll enter again.

At least my mermaid was displayed at eye level although disheveled.

So, here were some of the winners.

Staff choice (of against the rules trademarked characters):

Theme and I think 3rd place:

Close up…

Second place:

Last, but not least, this right here is the division winner, 1st place winner, and theme winner. Three awards. Might I mention this guy’s crocheted fruit and vegetables somehow always win?

No further comment.

Trying to be cool. Stay gold Pony *girl. You can do it! I’m failing. It doesn’t matter! Who are the judges anyway? Have they ever crocheted?? Ok I’m done.
