Fulton County Fair Results

So we went to the Fulton County Ohio Fair this morning to drop off my entries in the baking categories (Apple Pie, Zucchini Bread and Carrot Cake) and noticed they had judged the quilts and pictures.  Had to go over and see how things went....

Well my three wall hangings all received a blue ribbon, my snowman place mat and my coffee apron both got a second place and my raffle quilt got a blue ribbon....AND BEST OF SHOW!!!  Oh my goodness!!  I am so excited!  

Our pictures did okay.  I got a second place and Matthew got an honorable mention.  

We go back tonight to see how the baked goods did. And of course to eat all that yummy fair food!!

Website Update!

I have been doing a lot of updating on the website the last few weeks.  Wow!  It sure is time consuming, but it is looking much better. I have added new products, changed images, changed pricing and so much more.  Thank you to my awesome hubbie who continues to help me do a lot of data entry.

As I was answering an email from one of our customers I realized she had a blog and records podcasts!  I listened to her very first one and I am hooked!! Only 48 more to go and I can't wait.   What a sweet young lady and so fun to listen to! Check out her great blog spot Katie's Quilting Corner and she is on Facebook.  I have been having so much fun reading about Katie and her darling Corgi's.  

Funny, Matthew and I are going to get a Corgi soon and we may have found a breeder...THANKS Katie!!

How do you make quilting connections?  There are so many blogs, websites, podcasts and Facebook pages it can be overwhelming!  I try to find something that catches my eye and then dive in.  

So the Fulton County Fair is right around the corner and I have to decide which quilts and projects to enter.  I am thinking this wall hanging will go and probably my coffee apron.

I haven't picked any photographs yet, but will work on it this week.

This weekend is the Checker Open House and I get to attend a special workshop from FabShopNetwork and sew with Karen Montgomery!!  I also get to hear Alex Anderson speak.  Yeah I am a little excited!!!  This is always a great weekend!!  I'll keep you posted when I get back!! Until then ~Bear Hugs~
