It's County Fair time!!

And I've decided to enter...the only problem? They don't have a handspun division - we (the lady in charge of the entries and I) decided I need to enter under the Arts - Misc. division - and they only allow *1* entry per person per division. Hrumph.

Oh, and I finished my to wash 'em and wear 'em!
