The Alaska State Fair opened yesterday. It was really the only afternoon I had free to run to the fair this year...and it was the worst weather. Good thing quilts are an "indoor" activity.
I was very excited to see my Radiant Zinnias quilt won its division. Love getting a division ribbon.
My Hawaiian Faux Applique quilt got an Honorable Mention and my other little wall hanging was nicely placed...no ribbon.
It is always so fun to see all the beautiful quilts.
Though I have not attended Breakfast Club this summer, I immediately recognized one from the club. In May, the group took a set if flower panels designed by an Alaskan artist as the inspiration for their quilts. This is Marge's quilt. I have a special connection to her now...her grand daughter is marrying my son in November.
I really enjoy all the landscaping that is completely new every year at the fair. There is a large circular area that was very appropriate for our record-breaking rainy August...a water feature. Orca whales with a kayak adventurer.
One of the longest lines at the State Fair was a coffee vendor. It was downright horrible weather.
Eli was nice and warm. He always has to be in the middle of any sewing room project. I am trying to get some blouses made.
Hoping to finish a few sewing projects this weekend. I'm traveling to Washington next week to visit my parents. I sure hope I see some sunshine on my travels.
