We did the Worth County Fair... There were several quilts there, but I didn't care for the judging... The woman never looked at the backs. She never examined the binding.. She didn't check points... between eating the various brownies and cookies from the food dept around the corner, The Judge and her helpers while licking their fingers simply held the tops up said I like or I don't like..... and then gave a lil red or blue sticker ~ like a kindergarten work sheets type sticker. NO ribbons ~~~!!!
All of May was busy ! First we got the RV tuned up inspected for the year. We also spent t a few days getting the garden planted ! and the yard cleaned up form our 'Late winter. The remainder of the month included trips to Des Moines, Eldora- Pine Lake with Beast and wild weather, also off to Kansas City for graduation party.
Now that we are home. For the month of June, I'm catching up on current projects,, 6 Belize blue feathered stars for a commission in TX.
....... theres many many lil stinkin triangles in this quilt here they are chained off the table and pooling on the floor. ...400 or so !
I 've found a sewing table that is portable and a very nice Height. This week I'm sewing near the PC while keeping up on a family event.
The next big project is a whole cloth quilt for expected baby in July. that's getting closer !!!
It always amazes me how a simple humble piece of muslin can be transformed with mere pencil and needle & thread................ plus couple hundred hours.
I'm working on this project in the front room while watching too much news.
Every now n then I have to get up , stretch, walk around and cheer along all the garden goodies that have been planted. We have tucked seeds in all the various beds around the new house. Near the garage we have chard and cabbage .. still very small.
at the street side we planted bushy green beans in amongst some wild things from previous owners.
The backyard bed has wide rows planted to try out the digger Santa brought me..
new toys !
Along the fence line in a wide bed are the tomato........ 30 of them.. I'm in the mood to can this year,,,,Heres to Good Iowa Dirt !!!
