This is for you Becky! Thank you for nudging me back to my blog!
I came home from SDC with the goal of trying to get it ALL done by the end of October. Well, I can say that it was an unrealistic goal. I did, however, finish Ben's quilt top (have to schedule time to go quilt it at my friend Sandy's), Got the pink one quilted, got another top done for a niece, have made good progress on some Christmas tree applique dishtowels. Still have much more to do. Perhaps by Thanksgiving, I will have it done. That would be so nice.
Got lots of new designs on needles, will share those in another post.
Since my last post, I demonstrated spinning at the State Fair for two days. My entries both got First Place ribbons. My handwoven shawl, I entered in the wrong category, so not sure how it would have placed for real. But my knitted tablecloth placed First. It did not get the Best In Show ribbon, but you win some, you lose some. You've seen the handwoven Shawl. What you did not see was the lace knitted tablecloth called Lyra. It took me 3 years to complete this, off and on knitting, not constant.
here. Her color choices were great!
Here is mine on display.
Here is the one that got Best in Show this year.
My first Race For The Cure!This is me, Diane, Kay (our survivor) and Kay's daughter in law and grand daughter.
My favorite part of the whole race was the survivors parade. I cried, I admit it. I knew that these women were mothers, grandmothers, sisters, friends and I was thankful that they were there.
My favorite picture is of Kay and Coach. What a great time it was to share this day with her.
