Homecoming Hoorah

This is the local high school's homecoming week with the College's running simultaneously (genius, I must say!) Anyway, so my 13 yr old daughter is just about ready to go - dress, corsage, hair - I'll be so glad when Sunday comes! Between two sets of school pictures, one set of sports pictures and then Homecoming pictures this weekend, I'll have spent well over $200 just in pictures!!!

Anyway, to return to my quilty side - we set up at the Molasses Festival in Arnoldsburg at the end of September. Having slept in the box trailer for three nights and not making enough to pay the set-up fee, not to mention the two days lost of work with no vacation left, I guarantee I won't be doing that again anytime soon!

The redeeming part of the whole thing was the electric and the people. I was able to sew all day and I made quite a few more contacts - got my name out a bit more, anyway. I have a new commission project due in February and have all the brown strips sewn together for Branson's quilt. Still a ways to go to finish it, but it's coming!

Well, it's 9:30 pm here and my eyes are so tired! We'll catch up some more next time, ok??
