Stokes County Fair

This past September, I entered some art, crafts, and cookies in the Stokes County Fair. This fair is very traditional and somewhat small. It has unique categories, and I was curious to see which other professional artists would enter work in the fair and what kind of work they would enter. (I was also inspired by my pastor's wife and children who always enter the Stokes County Fair.)

I was excited to be named Best of Show in the Fine Arts Department for my pen and ink drawing.

I also ventured into the crafts and cooking category.
I won 9 ribbons out of 11 entries.

Very nice!!! :)

Is the orange thing with b&w patches a totebag?

And what's the round-looking thing out of the same b&w fabric?

Thanks ;->

Yes, I made an orange tote bag, referencing school colors as I may be caring it to school.

The other 'thing' with the black fabric is a magnetic message board.
