"There's no place like home!"

This is my neighbor, Anita.  

Anita has been buying my wool for several years now.  She is a needle felter and her favorite subjects are mainly animals.  It's a good thing as some of the school mascots for this area are tigers, cougars, and eagles! She goes to the weekly Farmer's market on the square as well as craft shows in the area and sells her felted creations.  

In last week's county fair, Anita entered the Santa Claus in the Christmas category and the Wizard of Oz set in the Art category (under other).  Her Santa Claus received a blue ribbon.  The W of O set was up against all of the Art category - the paintings, the sculptures, etc., and there were LOTS of entries.  She received a Reserve Champion!  Some of Under The Son Shetland wool is used in this set.  Way to go Anita!  

As for my entries, I received ribbons on all of them and got Reserve Champion in the Handspun category for my dark brown shawl.  Pictures will come in Sept.
