The eye of the beholder

My friend Jessie recently had a baby shower. And pictured below is one of the gifts she got at her baby shower:
Unique, eh? The giver didn't make it, but she did find it at a yard sale. I believe the colors match the baby's room. It's made from yarn. We all thought it was pretty unusual. I had never seen anything like it before.

So you can imaine my surprise when I went to the Utah State Fair, and walked around the arts and crafts pavillion, and saw this:

Yarn art! And it won first prize! At something.

Now call me crazy, but I majored in Art History... And I've never seen framed yarn art before, and to be hit with it twice in one week! Sometimes you just can't prepare enough for something.
