Maryland State Fair ribbons

The bedspread won First Prize: a Blue Ribbon, along with a Special Award: a big Yellow Ribbon, at the State Fair. There are four Special Awards given each year for what the judges consider to be the best entries. Mine won for Best Crochet. Both ribbons are given with a cash prize.

The Fern and Thistle Shawl won an Honorable Mention ribbon.
