Hi, everyone, I just got news from my friend, Judy. She told me that my cross stitch project at the Somerset County Fair won First place and that it also got Best in Show.

 

I am so very very very happy. A year's worth of work has all paid off.

 

Once the County Fair is over, the project will go to the Berlin Community Fair weeks after the county fair.

 

To say I am happy, is beyond believe. I can't believe I won. WOW. YEAH ME.

Huge congratulations, Patti! I'm not surprised you won!

Re: This week...

Becke, thanks so much. I hoped I would win a ribbon but the get first place and the Best In Show. WOW.

 

It took me a year to get this done. I always hope that someday I would get the Best in Show. This is only my third year.

 

I am very very very happy. :smileyvery-happy::smileyvery-happy::smileylol::smileyhappy::womanvery-happy:

 

I am happy that the judges thought that my stitching project was that great.

I have been stitching for over 14 years or more so this is just great to be recogized for the work I do.

 

So now I work on one for next year.

 

I will sent pictures as I am going to the fair today. I go on Wednesday. It is rodeo night. I love the rodeo.

 

So thanks again,

Re: This week...

I'm getting ready to leave for my son's wedding in Portland, Oregon. It's been so hectic here I haven't had a chance to mail the Got Books? shipments. Max is getting one and, since I'll be late mailing it, I'll throw in some extras. The rest of you have time to post on some featured threads between now and then. I may select a few others to receive books, but I won't be able to mail anything until I return on September 3. Thanks for bearing with me - it's been a crazy summer and an even crazier month!

Re: This week...

Maxcat, I hope you have a Great Labor day. I am planning a holiday event at the B & B for the Labor Day weekend.

 

All kinds of food, drinks and of course desserts. There will be fireworks too.

 

Did you see my stitching project. I won first place and Best in Show. I can hardly believe it. I am now working on the one for next year.

 

How is Max? Callie goes to the vet on the 5th to get her shots. She won't like me but she needs them.

 

I am doing great since I had my last cataract surgery. I need to get my new glasses. I will do that on the same day after Callie gets her shots.

 

I will get going out with my friend, Joyce for the day.

 

Getting things done around the apartment. Cleaning up and getting rid of stuff I don't need anymore. I am getting there. I do get tired when I clean so I just take my time.

 

I am not going to wear myself out to get this done in a day or two. I will take my time and just keep up with cleaning once a week.

 

Callie is great. She is fat and sassy. I love her.

 

So talk to you later.

 

Give Max hugs and kisses.

Max is doing a bit better. But he is getting weaker. Your project is beautiful and I'm glad you won first prize and best in show!

Re: This week...

maxcat, I am praying for Max. I am sure that he is a great cat.

 

Thanks, it was a year's worth of work and it paid off. I am very happy. I could not believe that I won. The project will go to the Berlin Community Fair in two weeks and see how it does there.

 

This was my third year entering. I am just so happy.

 

So take care of Max and give him hugs and kisses from me and Callie.

 

Callie says hi to Max.

 

Talk to you soon.

Re: Labor Day Celebration

Becke, I finished reading Code by Kathy Reichs and Brendan Reichs. It was good it is the third in the Virals series.

 

A must read. This is a great series for Kathy and Brendan.

 

I am also reading The Beast by Faye Kellerman. I love Peter and Rina.

Re: Labor Day Celebration

Becke, I just finished Haven by Kay Hooper. It was really good but sad at the end.

 

I like her books a lot.

 

Poor Callie is feeling the side effects of her shots. Sleeping a lot.

Re: Labor Day Celebration

Becke, Yes, Callie is feeling much better. She came to me this morning for her treats and ate some breakfast.

 

I am having an allegery attack. Very stuffy, sneezing and coughing. I get this in the morning and then sometimes before I go to bed.

 

My cross stitch project goes to the Berlin Community Fair on Wed the 11th. I am hoping that I get a ribbon at this fair too.

 

I am working on the Angel Couple for next year.

 

How are you? Did you daughter get all moved and settled in?

I'm glad Callie is better. My daughter doesn't have a job yet, but she's settling in at last. She and I spent the day unpacking a ton of book boxes. Tomorrow we're going to hang pictures, so hopefully we can empty all the boxes so she has room to move around!
