This post is to show some of the various crafts we saw at the state fair.
Here (below) are a few interesting paper crafts.
I love the dark blue one in the middle.
Wood burning on a gourd. It was really cool. They had a mirror behind to show the work on back.

This was a large metal sculpture, which was so cool.
This cat rug was so unique and I love it!
The stocking cap on the left was made by a friend of mine. She called it her thinking "carp as it looks like a fish. The filet crochet pieces were nice, and this christening gown reminded me of one I made years ago for a friends baby. It was my first crochet project at the time!
This piece is lovely as well!
The pictures on the left were created with wood and the horses head was a wood carving that was painted.
These mountain pictures were also created with wood
