Best of Show Needlework Award

My entry into the Needlework Category of the Garrard County Fair won the Garrard County Arts Council  Best of Show honor and Fair Grand Champion- Needlework award. This is a 1/2" scale french knot miniature rug. Averages about 2-200-300 french knots per inch- this means about 6-8,000 total french knots. I have been working on this piece for 2 years.This was a Teresa Layman pattern.

Two other miniature pieces I entered received "blue/first place honors".
