At the Fair: Upstairs in Home-Arts

Marvelous stuff up in the Home Arts  section.  I appreciate that they have plastic or glass in front of the entries, but I couldn’t get a glare free shot.

This appliqued quilt won best of the best….and it’s amazing.

When they first began combining entries, I was very upset.  Now days, I pass everything very slowly to see as much as I can see.

You knew I would like this one for the colors, but I also like it for the quality of the work.

Matchsticks.  Yes.

Another appliqued quilt, another well-deserved blue ribbon.

I love this section.  I admire the men and women who make these crafts from sewing and quilting, lace making, to ceramics and furniture decoration.  That chair is certainly a winner in my mind.

Life is Really in the Footnotes:

  • Us:  Out to breakfast, Ross Dress for less for a belt for me, worked on costumes, simple dinner, he meeting, me reading and “60 Minutes.”

  • Reading:  Finished the new mystery.

  • Balance:  He’s taking me to the first of two blood draws for my surgery.

    1. Pretty quilts. I almost expected to see an old treadle Singer machine. 8)

      You're such a kid; my doctor says I can have blood drawn at home, which was a helluva lot simplelr.

    2. Love the home-arts at our fair too. Usually there's a full table of women tatting. Beautiful but beyond me.

    3. Are you having blood drawn for transfusion purposes? I love the quilts. The blue ribbon winner 6th from the top photo is my favorite. Love the appliques..especially the blue flower. Take care. Thinking about you. Love, Dianne

    4. Those quilts put mine to shame.

    5. Gorgeous quilts! I'm so sorry you're having to go through all this for your surgery.


    What a delight to get a note from you. Thanks for leaving one.
