A while back I came up with this pillow pattern....
I entered it in the Maryland State Fair and it did very well!!
I entered it in the Great Frederick Fair and it did very well!!
I entered it in the CGOA design competition and it did very well there, too!!
So early this year when I saw an ad for the Mary Maxim crochet contest I submitted the Country Gardens pattern
Much to my surprise it won first place in the accessories division!!!
Just last week their catalog came and I found it in there for sale as a kit in many different color choices to make it in!!
That was one winning pattern!!
