My 2019 Big E entries are …

So last year, I entered two pictures at the Big E – along with one of my yarn-embroidered burlap sacks.  And as much as I wanted to enter another burlap sack project – I figured this year I would just keep things simple. I’m allowed to keep things simple.  It’s my blog and I can…
