After 40 years, woman completes county fair projectJuly 6, 2018
By The Associated Press
BLOOMINGTON — A southern Indiana woman who started a needlework project in 1978, aiming to enter it in her county’s fair, has finally finished the artwork 40 years later.
Monroe County resident Jill Campbell began working on the needlework depicting Santa Claus and his elves in Santa’s workshop after the birth of her first child.
Three children and four decades later, Campbell finally submitted the needlework last week to the Monroe County Fair, where it’s competing in the open class holiday category.
The mother of four sons now has 11 grandchildren. She says her husband, Steve, hopes she never starts another project again.
Campbell tells The Herald-Times jokingly that “if I start another one, he’s gonna shoot me.”
The Campbell family are longtime members of 4-H.
