A Quick Trip to the Fair

When you enter something in the fair you get a ticket to attend.  Jeff loved the fair, and Thursday was his favorite day to go, it was tractor pull day.  But there were years before he met me, he went every day.

Wednesday I decided to attend the fair and use my ticket.  I also knew it was going to be a quick trip, since I have a bunch of stuff to get accomplished.

I liked this bench in Memory of someone.  The sign is so faded I couldn't really read it. 

But the tractor seats are awesome. 

4-H not only has animals, but also gardening, and lots of different types of crafts.  This was their patio pot competition.  I was in awe. 

I had to run over to the Domestic Arts building to visit my quilt.

I thought this quilt was very pretty.  I love the colors, and the secondary patterns are pretty awesome too.

A couple more quilts.  The one in the back the focal fabric is Cardinals. 
My quilt.  I won a blue ribbon!

This quilt was pretty awesome too. 

I loved this embroidery piece.

I wandered a wee bit more then stopped and had a late lunch.  Smoked turkey leg.

With cherry BBQ sauce.  YUM!  I also had an elephant ear, and decided I needed to head home.  I have lots to get done in the next few days.
