Porter County Fair July 20-29

The fair was wonderful ... last day was sizzling heat. The boys, DH & I went nearly every day. I enjoyed the 4H dog show & the rabbit exhibit - both are my favorites. The free entertainment was nice, esp. the alligator show & the canine show. I'd like to teach our dogs to do SOMETHING aside from eating, sleeping, barking at the doorbell ... yeah, well.

My entries did well. Far better than I expected. Was nice to have Sue D, Deb L, Elaine, Millie, and Karol (stitching friends) enter their things. A woman tried to take photos of the exhibits on display, with her digital, & the images were greenish & dark b/c the lighting was very high in the building. I will try to get some photos taken this afternoon & put up a foto album in my side bar.

Congratulations! I have never tried entering any of my work in the fair. It would be fun to look at all the work, though!

Hope things have cooled off for you. Our temps have dropped about 20 degrees - still humid though..
