I always enjoy reading about and seeing all the amazing projects everyone here has completed. More than once I have searched Gatherings for technical advice and never come away without some new idea and a giggle or two. Thanks to the urging of Ocrafty1, I figured I should post pics of my wool contest outfit. 13 years ago I entered our state fair wool contest for the first time. Feeling good about my suit (I still have it and wear the skirt), I was immediately humbled as I looked around at the other contestant’s garments. From that point, I was hooked on wool and decided it was time to take my sewing skills to the next level. I was allowed the privilege of representing our state in the national wool contest and am quite proud of my 2nd place finish. While traveling to the national contest at the end of this month would have been a great experience, I am glad I can finally wear my outfit!!!
