Hey, I won this third place ribbon at the Washington State Fair. Third place in a category with three entries + a participant ribbon? Pride of the Nicolai sisters. Well. Now that we have an idea of the competition, we're going to bring it next year. 

Just a stormy, lovely day outside a hardware store in Tacoma. 

Our chicken-raising neighbors keep us supplied with the most beautiful eggs. It's almost a shame to eat them. 

I've been cat/housesitting for a friend way out in the sticks. It's been so stormy that I think this was the first night I saw an actual clearish sky sunset. Not too shabby, Yelm, not too shabby.

  1. What category... Vague editorials that leave the judges wanting more, to choose from?

    Stormy Tacoma fading to semi-bright sunset in Yelm (sigh) heaven. :-)

    1. Ha! Yeah, I should have mentioned the category. It was needle felting, and I entered a felted narwhal I'd made for Catherine. It was a very last minute decision, and I didn't anticipate the judges very well. I don't think people really knew what it was, and the narwhal looked sort of sad and tiny in the case next to the other entries. But I have learned and will apply my new knowledge to next year!

      And it is very pretty here this time of year. :)
