Etsy Link & the Fair

I did mention my etsy site before, and give the address; but now I've added the link over on my sidebar (to the right), for easier viewing.  I tried to make it do a slideshow of all the items available, but was having trouble; any advise on that sort of gadget?  Thanks for motivating me, Twila, and I added some new items today.  Looking forward to catching up on life, etc. so I can make some new things!

The fair is this week, so we've enjoyed some of that too!  Andy went to "Grandma Sue's" for a nap, so I could enjoy it more with the bigger kids.

Of course we had to check out the quilts too.... and all of mine got blue ribbons!  The best of show included the entire clothing & textiles area (and went to someone who'd made an afghan).

Queen size bed quilt.
Baby Quilt.
Wall Hanging.
Quilted Tote.
There were some really pretty ones, I LOVE the frog!  All that tiny paper-piecing.... whoever made that should have gotten best of show, in my opinion!

My favorite pattern, the log cabin block.
Uncle Jared came for a bit, that's always fun and entertaining!
Andy (the tire & wheel boy), really liked these huge ones.
The "waving goodbye" post.
Enjoying a good book together.
And some produce from the garden!
Hope you are all enjoying your summer!

I love the boys being so excited about the book. Yay for your quilts! They all deserved ribbons! I really like that frog too! I am surprised it didn't get a ribbon. Our fair doesn't have much with quilts... would love to see a really great display! I love your etsy pictures! And the pictures of the kids with ice cream--so cute!

Yep- I had complete faith that you'd come home with a swag of ribbons. Well deserved too by the look of all those photos.

Your etsy store looks wonderful!

Good Grief, Lisa! Where in the world do you find the time?? Great job on your quilts and ribbons! I am especially fond of the frog quilt for some reason. The kids are getting so big. Come visit us sometime.
