Today was a totally fun day. The boy and I dropped the girl off at school and we went to run errands, including a trip the the Farmers Market, where we got some incredible strawberries from my favorite vendor and even some peaches. Then we hung out and picked up A after she's had her nap (the reason she went to school was so that she'd get a nap) to go to the County Fair.
We got there and A and Z each made one of these:
Very cool. They had set out some sheered wool and paper and glue and crayons.
We looked at a calf that was born yesterday...we looked at hobbies...and then we went in search of ...
yep. I entered several pieces in the knitting category.
I can honestly say in all the years I've gone to the fair, I've never stepped into this building. It was a little frustrating running around looking at every single display to see if it's one of mine. I had Z looking too. But he was trying to look for my name, and that's difficult in that huge place.
After much running around, I found all my items, and guess what?! I ribboned.
My goldlack shawl won 2nd place. woo hoo.
Blue ribbon for Hanalore.
Double woo hoo.
