They have a children's room at the fair so alot of the LDS church Primary groups have an activity during the summer where each child makes a fair project. Kendal even made one this year and they turned out so cute! Kelsey was so happy that she got 2 ribbons at the fair this year!
I even stepped out of my little nice and cozy comfort zone and entered a quilt in the fair. This quilt has been a long time in the making! I made most of the blocks during my first year of Heber Valley Quilt Guild in 2005 as I was learning how to sew and learned so many fun techniques. I finally finished it this summer and had it machine quilted. It turned out fun and it is such a memory quilt for me. I have so many memories of the fun ladies in our guild in each block, and Kelsey did all the lettering for me when she was 3 that I embroidered, it has a block in it that I made while having MASSIVE labor pains with Kendal kicking my spine, and on and on. It is just full of memories. The name of it is What Matters Most because most of the blocks pertain to an embroidery design I did on it that says Friends, Family, Flowers, Freedom, Faith.
We went to the carnival tonight and I didn't want to lug my 3 inch by 1 inch HUGE camera around so I left it home. What a mistake! The look on Kendal's face was pure joy while riding the rides and I missed what 1000 words of happiness could not capture. The squeals of Kelsey however are still ringing in my ears.
