Are you happy when you enter your stitchery in the county fair?

I am a wee bit on the unhappy side! I entered two pieces of needlepoint (the pictures are posted here somewhere) and I got a second and a third. These were the only two pieces of needlepoint entered! There were 4 pieces of counted cross stitch. Now entries read: Adult crafts, Section 135 needlework general and subsection 1 (counted cross sttich or 2 needlepoint. I think they judged them all together which isn't appropriate. I had people come up to me at the fair and want to know why I didn't get a first! Beats me!
Have you had this same experience?
It does concern me about the lack of needlework entries. We are not going to be able to keep this art form going if people don't see it and admire it and decide to try their hand at it.
