Fast & Furious Week!

This has been a fast and furious week! The Central States Fair is this week in town and mom, two co-workers, and I got fair passes for the entire week. Monday night was Dustin Evans and Rodney Atkins. Dustin was great as usual and I added all his CD's to my MP3 player this week. Rodney was incredible! I was rather shocked at how many of his songs I knew. Tuesday night was Doo Waa Riders which were an old band. Paul and his mom met me under the tent for a funnel cake, where we saw Ed and his friends. Blake Shelton was the second concert and he was awesome. I've seen him in concert before, but he was even better this time. Wed. night I stayed home as I don't enjoy rock concerts. I serged together both of the sweatshirt jackets that I am making for mom and I. I also made 511" of bias binding! It was a 35" square I had to use to make that much binding, but it went together fast.
Last night we went to the rodeo. JJ & Ryan were both riding and several of my former students were also participating. I still enjoy cheering for all of them and hope they do well. The rodeo got over early, so I put the binding on the jackets. By 11 I had it all on, but needed to sew it down. I got up an hour early this morning and sewed all the binding down and threw the jackets in the washer. I put them in the dryer while I got ready. I'll have to take pictures tomorrow when we wear them. I also finished the binding and hanger on the Halloween wall hanging I made for myself. That's three finishes for me this week! It may be all I finish this month, but I'm so happy to have these projects completed.

Sounds like a great week! I saw Rodney Atkins when he opened for Martina McBride at a concert in Bay City, MI last year. I really enjoyed him. Of course, I love Martina. Looking forward to the pics of the jackets.

You've had one very busy week. The fair and all the music you heard sounds like it was lots of fun. Can't wait to see more pictures of your projects.
