Fun at the Colorado State Fair!!

I was off work today; and was able to stitch a LOT!! First I finished the Red Winged Blackbird from Bent Creek for myself; I stitched one for my mom; I want to finish it into a pin pillow; and I went to the Quilt shop downtown last week and found the perfect material and I know that when I finish it I'll want to keep it; and since it was such a fun stitch I decided to stitch myself up one and I"ll finish both at the same time; I'll post a picture when I'm done. Kenny took Rowdy (our dog) down to the river to swim for a few hours to give me some alone time. :) So I watched re-runs of Andy Griffith (my favorite, but only the black & white ones w/Barney) and stitched; I started a RR I'm in; the ladies theme is "Kitchen". It'll be real cute when I"m done; then we ate dinner; (left over spaghetti; which tastes better the 2nd day) and decided to go up to the Colorado State Fair.

It's only about 1/2 miles from our home; we walked around and he played a few games and won me 2 big stuffed animals. :) A white bear holding a pink heart that says "I love you" and a big purple and white cow. LOL I"m 49 years old and I still get a huge smile when he wins me a stuffed animal. I'm up to 27 of them now. LOL then we went and sat on the grass and listened to a band that was playing for about 30 minutes and went back to the car where we found a parking ticket because we were "too close to the walk way". We were at least 20 ft. from it! Besides the ticket we had fun. Back to work tomorrow. YUCK!!
