Summer Time

Summer is almost gone and yet it seems to have flown by so quickly! Mikaela and I took in the Quilts and Vines Outdoor Quilt show a couple weeks ago and I got to meet my blogging friend Sara. I've got lots of pictures to share, but haven't uploaded them yet. Mikaela is 31 weeks old this week and she's on the verge of crawling, doing a lot of scooting. I entered 12 items in the quilts division and 5 in the sewing division at the Central States Fair this week. I received 8 1st's, 6 2nd's, and 3 3rd's. I also won Best of Class for original design for my English Paper Pieced table runner/ wall hanging. I entered it in the mixed technique division since it has hand pieced, hand appliqued and machine quilted.


I've finished two samples for the store as well as working on a third and I'm quilting a quilt for my Aunt Mae I hope to finish this week. Tuesday night Paul and I went to the World of Outlaws race. We had a great time and sat with our best man Jory. It was so fun to see him and watch a great race. Mikaela went camping with her favorite great aunt and had a good time as well.
I'm keeping busy and will be walking in the Relay for Life in memory of my mom this weekend. It's supposed to be hot, so we'll see how I do! I'm sure I'll get a good workout with the stroller pushing.

Sounds like fun! Hey - I meant to ask what sort of prizes you got from the fair? Anything good? All of your quilts were beautiful and we loved seeing them when we went out to the fair! Good job!
