Harriet at the Fair


Harriet has been spending the last couple of weeks at the Minnesota State Fair in the Fine Arts Exhibition. She's far from lonely - over 10, 000 visitors go through that building every day of the fair! Over 2500 people entered, only 370 got in. I've gotten two ribbons in the past (2004 and 2006), but since they changed from flat ribbons to the giant ruffly kind in 2008 I haven't gotten an award. I gotta get me a ruffly ribbon! Maybe next year...

Janine Irisarri, a fellow Minnesota Mosaic Guild member, also got in. I also saw a mosaic vase, but I think that was it for mosaics. Janine got one of those ruffly ribbons! Congrats!

I said goodbye to Harriet when I was at the fair the other day. Someone has purchased her so she'll move into her new home after the fair.
