When Curly dropped the bomb that we were moving, he suggested we each write a Frederick Bucket List. The kids wrote things like, "Have my friends over for a play date" or "Go to Baker Park." We told them we might not be able to do everything on their lists, but we would try our best. My list included a lot of restaurants. We've crossed a couple off the list already. It also included the fair. Specifically, entering a quilt (or two) and taking our kids out of school early to ride as many rides as we could.
Check and check.
I am pleased to announce that one of my quilts got a 4th place ribbon. Yay me! In the photo, it's the one on the top in the middle. I am pleased as punch. It was made from my pattern in the book. I had entered the quilt in the "Original Pattern" category, so if you make one, please be sure to tell people you made it from an Award Winning Pattern (capital letters are necessary). However, I am not pleased that I was wearing the most unflattering sweatshirt available. And my bra could be a little more supportive. Honestly. I'll be using this photo in my Biggest Loser audition. I'm sure Bob will ask if the funnel cake was worth it.
