OK not a real hanging, but hanging the quilts at state fair. There are over 450 this year. What a selection. I entered the raffle quilt in the two person catagory. Gloria and I did it, we got a yellow ribbon. Pretty good with all the competition there is at the fair. I didn't see if anything else got anything as all was not up when we had to leave. It was down to where there were to many hands and not enough space to work, so Sandi K and I left to get something to eat and head out for home. Sold another half dozen of the tee shirts.
Will go down on Thursday to see them all hung and tell who won the big prizes. My guess is Sandi McMillan will get one of the biggies. Her stuff is always so neat.
Stopped in Seward at the quilt shop. Sandi K needed sewing machine needles. I didn't get anything. What I wanted they didn't have.
Finally cooled off and stopped raining.
Sorry no pictures. If anyone can, take a trip to the fair, the quilt show is great.

still kickin'

Ok, I know I haven't gotten anything written in two weeks again!!!! This summer is still the pits, however, have been busy with lots of Non-Quilting Stuff!!!
Did get to the Tims Seminar last week though. What an eye opening experience. Learned a lot from the presentations by Ricky, Alex and Libby. Now to find time to actually put some of those new ideas into practice. So keep watching and hopefully will have something new up soon.

I have two projects from State Meeting to finish. They are close to done, but still haven't strung enough time together to accomplish this. Soon I hope.

went to Norfolk meeting last night. Oh my it rained, wind and some hail. Thought we might have to swim home. The wet pavement quit about 2 or 3 miles out of town, so wasn't a big deal to get home. Not one drop here. Thats OK though as we didn't need a storm. seems the front split and some went south and some north.

Need to go cook something.

poor neglected blog!!!

Ah finally I am back. This summer has been the pits. Its so humid it just drains a person to even go outdoors. SO I did manage to get these two wall pieces finished. I just took a printed scene and added the 1/2" black cross sections to make it look like I am looking out a window and seeing wildlife. I think they turned out kind of neat.

Have some other things in progress, but the heat has really sapped my energy.

Went across the street to the auction on Saturday. Ended up buying Aggies car. Its a low mileage Oldsmobile that we know was taken care of, so bought it. Will sell the old Chrysler. Its still a good car even though it is pretty old. Starts and runs like a top and has a heater that will drive you out of the car.

House sold also, to a local young family, so will have good neighbors. Its always a gamble when they auction a home.
State convention was last week, so spent from Wed. through Sunday in Omaha. Had the CQC quilt show this past weekend, got state fair entries sent in and next big event will be the Ricky Tims seminar in Omaha on the 17th. Then state fair. So will be busy until end of the month. Will white glove at the state fair on the 30th, should be fun.

Enjoy the pictures.
