Fair Time!

On Tuesday of last week, mom and I met our friends Daisy, Cindy, and Darlene, who we used to work with at the quilt shop, for a night at the fair. We started with going to the midway and getting all of our favorite fair food - gyros, funnel cake, nachos, corn dog, coney dog, and smoothie. We ate under the big tent and had a chance to visit and catch up, since we haven't all gotten together in several months. Then we went to look at the quilts. Cindy had her Buggy Barn Crazy Jacks quilt entered and I still love it. She's a huge Buggy Barn fan, so I always admire her quilts since it's not my type of quilt making.
I also saw this turquoise and brown one that put me in the mood to work on mine. I really would like to get it done yet this fall.
Then we headed next door to the cream puff booth! That was the real destination, but we saved the best for last. Daisy and Cindy with their cream puffs.
Darlene with her huge peach melba cream puff.
Mom and I shared a snickers cream puff. It was so good, but very filling.
It was a fun night with great friends and we're definately going to have to do it again. We're hoping the next time we'll be able to do a sewing retreat together.

That cream puff is almost enough incentive to drive to SD!!! The quilts were great! Looks like everyone had a great day!

You look great! And, your Mom does, too! Hope you're both feeling as good as you look. And speaking of lookin' good, that cream puff made my mouth water! Glad you had a good time!

I love fair food too! We had to have a foot-long corn dog. I didn't get a funnel cake this year though - bummer!
