County Fair

Ok, I want to know where my summer's gone? It's less than two weeks to County Fair and my children have exactly zip - zilch - nada done in the way of projects for 4-H. Where's my daughter's beautiful (and completed) quilt?! Why, she's made four blocks - out of like twenty something! And her batting project, where she was going to compare different battings? Well, those are still all in the box. Let's not even talk about my son - he kind of gave up on everything but his cattle this summer. Oh well, I guess I need to let go of the "perfect" mother thing and keep remembering "it is what it is" - my new favorite phrase!

Since we're talking about kids and 4-H today, here's a recent shot of my three hooligans:

Aren't they just adorable?! I can't believe how big they are getting. Must be all that food they're inhaling this summer. At least I hope they're inhaling it cuz my grocery bill is phenomenal. Otherwise I'm just eating it all and that's really not good - at least for my butt!

I'll leave you with a shot hubby took earlier this spring. The cow is my son's show heifer from last year and that's her calf. You can see our house in the background and the farm a little behind our house. Home sweet home.

Thanks for the comment on my scrap quilt, it's a good book and a quick finish quilt. You are showing up as "no reply" so I had to try and answer your question here. The Merry Christmas stitchery wasn't a pattern but instead I used a rubber stamp and stitched the design.
