We survived the fair, there are meetings a plenty this week, vacation schedules have been re-adjusted and school taxes will arrive soon. I could certainly use a break but let me tell you that Sunday afternoon on the porch with hexies, a good audio book, 1 cat in the lap and another on the grass was absolutely divine!
Since I need to get this posted rather quickly, I'll just share hexie night and the ribbons I won at the fair and leave the rest of the fair pictures until tomorrow. Don't forget that the Be a Hexie Queen Hop starts in just
|My LQS hosts a monthly hexie night but we decided to live it up and had a second night at the fair near the Home Arts Division and the LQS booth. 7 of us chatted, ate fair food, hexied and shared our obsession with fair-goers. I know *I* had a blast!|
