It's County Fair time back home in Ohio and the pics coming my way have been a real treat. It makes being homesick a little easier...
And the photos help (or is it distract from?) the deep sadness we feel at the passing of our very dear friend, Bill, after a short illness. Our hearts are heavy and we miss him terribly.
And now for your viewing enjoyment...
Great Nieces E (age 3) and O (age 2) loved spending time together at the Fair.
E took off her tiara and put on a helmet to win a ribbon in her first horse show-- Which basically included being lead around the ring by her big cousin, but still, that's one huge horse for a little peanut!
One of their horses is known as "The One-Eyed Wonder" because, well, he only has one eye. So when they did a fun 4-H horse show, my nieces dressed up as-- what else-- One-eyed Pirates!
Niece A won 4-H Outstanding Youth (along with lots of ribbons in horse shows)! Two days later she was on her way to Ohio State University for her first year of college! I still can't believe it.
(And neither can her mother. A is the baby of the family.)
We were lucky enough to have Niece K (Pirate on the right above) spend a week with us in sunny California. It was her first visit here and we had a blast seeing all the sights, including the beach. She's a senior at Ohio State this year.
And I made this quilt top called Glam Clams by pattern designer Latifah Saafir on Saturday. Latifah taught a fab class at Sew Modern loaded with the tips and tricks to stitch this together.
It still needs quilted but I'm thrilled with it.
Thanks for letting me brag and please, say a prayer for Bill and his wife and family.
