A very random week at our house

 My sweet little girls the other day at Soldier Hollow - we are gearing up for a great event come Oct 1st!

 The fair was last week and my sweet Kelsey made herself a skirt which earned a blue ribbon and she also made her Julie doll a matching skirt that was selected to go to the state fair.  She is such a good little seamstress.  We went and picked our things up at the exhibit hall today and she made $15.00 this year at the fair! 

 Emmitt and Kendal played Scooby Doo cards this afternoon while I sewed buttons onto my new civil war bodice.  I am trying to get it finished for Civil War Days at This is the Place Heritage Park this weekend.  If you all need some good times this weekend, head on up to This is the Place!

 Emmitt and Kendal slept out on the tramp by themselves last night.  I was so worried I checked on them 4 times in the night!  They just hunkered down and slept the night away.  Kelsey and I slept out with them the night before and it was a long long night for me!  I swear mothers don't really get to sleep when camping or doing fun things like that because we are so worried about our kids - making sure their covers are on, making sure the cat is not sleeping on their head, making sure their bag is zipped up, making sure that groan in the night didn't really mean anything, etc etc!

 So, with the fair over, I get to add this quilt to my bed.  It is starting to get chilly here at night.  It breaks my little heart.  Summer wasn't that hot this year, and I am grateful for that, but I want it to stay for another 4 months or so!  I needed to add another blanket to our bed anyway, and since I picked this one up from the fair, that it where it went for now.  It is not really big enough for my queen bed, but it is fun to look at for now.
This quilt has taken me a year to complete - ridiculous!  It is a good thing the fair comes around every year so I can complete at least one quilt.  This sweet thing has been waiting for its binding for about 5 months now, and it finally got bound last week - in time for the fair!

Kelsey is an awesome little seamstress--- much like her mother!!

Good job on being a brave mom and letting your two littlest sleep outside on the tramp...I don't think I would get a wink of sleep worrying!

I think Kelsey sews a lot better than I do! Love your quilt! You're amazing!
