Deciding Entries

It's time to decide what to enter in the state fair. My entry form/fee is due by June 20, entries themselves are due July 16, with judging on July 20. (if you live here in Wisconsin, all the info is here)

I haven't done much over the past year, so I'm not sure how much I'll enter, or if I'll try and get some things done in time. For sure I want to enter one of Caleb's costumes. The question is, which one? Do I enter the Pharaoh or the Jester? I can't enter both -- one entry per category. I'm pretty sure I'll put it in the children's costume category, as that is supposed to be for ages 5-12. Whichever one I don't enter, I can enter next year. Do I try and get a dress made? Can I finish a top that can go with a skirt I did last year and have a 2 piece outfit? Decisions, decisions!

I'm also toying with entering a sweater. I've been working on Notre Dame De Grace for a while, and it's looking pretty good. I've got the back and both sleeves finished, and am partway through the front.

I also need to decide if I'll enter any photos. I really like the one I took of Calvin whittling a few weeks ago, and I do think some of my flower photos are quite pretty. Well, I've got about 2 weeks to decide, so I guess I'll just think about it some more.

I love entering the state fair. It is such an exciting time. We have ours in the fall and then there is the National Peanut Festival in Dothan, Alabama, which I enter every year. Some years are better than others.

Have fun and enjoy the contest.

I really like that picture of Calvin whittling too! Your flower pictures are always lovely as well!

I think I vote for the Pharaoh costume this year and the jester for next, although maybe the jester would do better because it was more difficult? Both were so nice.

Whatever you decide, can't wait to see how you do!

I like both costumes, it's a tough one. I bid for the jester though because that hat with the horns is incredible. Were you able to get the bells back on?
The picture of Calvin whittling great because of his expression, so pensive. I can't wait to find out what you decide in the end. Good luck!

I vote for the jester, too, though they are both just terrific.
