So excited! - OT

Sorry, the is completely OT. I was approached about entering my work in the state level craft competitions, then doing the Big E in the fall. I've never completed with my work before. When I look at it I see all the tiny flaws. So now I'm stressing over what type of work to enter...I make such a large variety. What type do you think I should enter?

Ive finally mastered the beaded tubular crochet - 

But I also do my soutache beaded jewelry

But more traditionally, I have my tatting 

 (This one I'm currently making)

These are great! I'm see no flaws! I suggest you look up past winners and runner-ups. Then you have an idea of what is popular and their expectations.

 That's a good idea, I'll have to see if I can find that online somewhere.

You do such gorgeous work.  I'm a sucker for that last one, though.  :)

All of those are beautiful!  

If you're after a ribbon I would try to see which area your opponents are weakest in, and then crush them errrrrr . . . enter that craft.  ** Evil Laugh **

If you're going for expertise the tatting is absolutely lovely.

They are all gorgeous!  Can't you enter them all?  My MIL enters 4 different groups each year:  full quilt and quilt top (so she can enter a quilt twice: one year enters it as the top and the next as the finished quilt); knitting and crochet.  She always brings in a ribbon or 2.
