Congrats, to my dear friend, Candy Thompson, on her first place win in the second level of state competition. Last month she won a blue ribbon in the Heritage Fair, which sent the doll to half state competition. Her third year in a row for taking first place in this level of competition. The Gypsy was based on the Gypsy Fortuneteller from my book A Wolf in Wolf's Clothing. The wonderful doll goes on to full state competition at the end of next month.
