The results are in!

Whew! The results are finally in!

I did not do too bad . . .

Whole wheat bread - 2nd place

Lime Jelly - 2nd place

Orange chiffon cake - 2nd place

Pound cake - 2nd place

Brownie cookies - nothing

Sugar cookies - 1st place

Chocolate Chip cookies - 1st place

Tangerine Jelly - 1st place

Potato bread - 1st place

And . . . . Grand Champion Bread for my potato bread!

Mom did quite well also:

Red dahlia single - 1st place
Marigold large - 2nd place
Rose - 1st place
Single bloom arrangement (dahlia) - 2nd place
Mixed arrangement - 1st place

Houseplants:
Philodendron - 1st place
Miscellaneous - desert privet - 1st place

Actually, I suppose I should envy mother, as she got 5 firsts and I only got 4. But I do not, and it would not have bothered me if I had not placed at all (well, maybe just a bit!)

Thank you all for your good wishes!
