Quilt swap and a day of fun!

I have spent the last few days working on my mini quilt for the quilt swap and I think its turning out pretty cute. It took me awhile to decided just what I wanted to do and this is what I came up with. I love the fabric and the color but yes its red my favorite so I guess that's why I like it so much! I should have it ready to quilt by Wednesday I hope.
Yesterday I went with the kids again to the County Fair. The picture above is my handsome son walking towards me. Oh he is the one in the red shirt, no not that one the one without the hat with the big smile on his face!
There was tractors for the kids to sit on and boy was that the hit of the fair for them. I think they sat on every tractor there. This is my son-n-law with my little grandson!
Looking at the pigs! I thought it was funny that the fence was solid so the kids had a hard time seeing the pigs.
They loved feeding the sheep some hay but the only one that would let the sheep eat out of his hand was the one in the yellow shirt. I is my crazy little grandson that will just about do anything where the other boys are a little more concerned if they are going to get bitten.
Then that night we went to the Demolition Derby! What crazy fun it was, I had never gone before. But I had so much fun watching those cars crash into each other!
Look at this one it went right up over the wall and was smoking like crazy. There was several that started on fire and one guy got hurt but was o.k. The only part that was not good was that we got home so late and now today I'm very tired and my bones ache from getting cold. The weather here is so weird this summer. Its just not as hot as most Augusts, the high yesterday was only in the 70's and dropped down to the 50's last night. I'm sure hopping that it warms up and that summer will last awhile longer!


  1. Sounds like a full day but what fun. As for the weather I think your summer has come down here early. The boys and I spent yesterday at the beach enjoying the warmth before the true summer hits and we melt. They enjoyed the water but still to cold for me.
    Hope you get some rest.
    Big Hugs
    PS love your quilt swap

  2. Julie,

    You can never go wrong going to a fair and especially when they have a demolition derby. Don't you just want to jump in a car and go smash into everyone. It always looks like such fun to me. I don't know what a doctor would say about that.


  3. I love the mini quilt. So pretty. Our weather has been crazy. Saturday I saw snow on the tip top of the wasatch mountains.

  4. But a good time was had by all, and that is what matters most, right?

    The mini-quilt is adorable!

  5. The kids loved the derby. They are still talking about it and were out smashing into eachother on their bikes yesterday!

  6. I adore taking kids to the fair. When my boys were little it was my entertainment to see them so entertained.

  7. Your little quilt is so pretty - I love the fabrics. The county fair looks fun too!
