Blue Ribbons at the Fair

The McHenry County 4H Fair has begun.  It is running from Wed Aug 1 to Sun Aug 5.  All of us have won a few blue ribbons this year.  Even with the few vegetables that we managed to grow, we won a few ribbons.  Ethan won a blue ribbon also on his abstract painting and Austin won a blue ribbon for his Lego creation and his nutcracker collection.   I was thrilled to win a blue ribbon for my felted purse.  There are some beautiful quilts on display this year.

In between getting ready for the fair, I have finished setting up for my garage sale tomorrow.  I don't have as much as past years, but there are still a lot of nice things that need a new home.  The sale will be from 8-2 on Friday. 

I'm glad to have gotten the coffee table out of the basement and I have put the new table and chairs that we bought in Pennsylvania in its place.  It looks great!  It changes the look of the basement.
