I do so love a good summer fair. The crafts and the animals and the giant tomatoes... Your photos are great - I especially like the tilt-a-whirl one - I almost got dizzy!


I love country fairs. Especially the animals.....oh, and the fried dough. I'm a sucker for fried dough.

Welcome to blogland, btw.


I just found your blog yesterday, and am so happy I did! It's funny you said that about a giveaway - I feel the same way with my blog!

Anyway, I look forward to many more posts!

Wahoo, Tilt-a-Whirl! My personal favorite!
The quilts are soooooo beautiful. Such a fun summer time place to go!

Love your pictures! I saw your Black Forest Purse earlier and have been stalking the pattern over at Henrietta's all day. . . Thanks for the inspiration :)


Stopping over from Yummy Goods...the mini bee quilt is awesome...maybe you might post a pattern some day? I bet you created it on your own..amazing! I tried to come up with a realistic but simple pieced grizzly bear pattern and finally gave up. I just started quilting about 6 months ago and it is my new obsession. There are so many wonderful new fabric designers and fabric/craft blogs that it got my juices going to start playing with fabric in a new way. Your blog looks like it is off to a good start...I can't imagine how all of you talented crafters find the time to take care of family stuff, craft/design, take pictures of EVERYTHING you do and see and get a blog up on a regular basis. Keep it up and I'll keep stopping by. Oh, by the way, I think the fabric circle tutorial is great. Vetran sewers could probably figure out how to make the fabric fit snuggly around the circle...but using cake circles is brilliant! Cardboard is so hard to cut smoothly! I have seen fabric stretched over canvas in squares and rectangles, but the circles give it a mod sort-of twist. I am going to try this in my classroom and craft room for little punches of fabric art.


Your photos from the fair are so colorful! I love that little tree on the quilt, too. I really enjoy the fairs late at night when the lights shine in the darkness and the merry-go-round music is playing. It seems like it is certainly summer right then!


I love county fairs! The rides freak me out a bit, and I do always end up eating too much junk, but I love them anyway.


oh, look at you with all these comments! and thanks for the rust picture. it did make my heart pitter patter. xo


Hey, so happy to see my blog on your list!! Thanks.

Okay I'm flipping over these incredible fair photos. Seriously. I want to paint them!

Great blog!


welcome to blogland! love the splashes of color. good luck :)


I love your pictures! Going to the fair is one of my favorite things to do. Here in Minnesota the State Fair will be starting up in about 3 weeks and I can't wait to eat some bad-for-me food!

Hey Jess, I ditto the quality of your pix. They are GREAT! also love the quilty little tree..applique always sends me, as I don't do it myself much. and you will never guess who I thought of when I saw the rust picture! (I will ALWAYS think of Melissa now WHENEVER I see rust!)

And get working on that giveaway. I like trying to win stuff! After my Tootsie pop challenge is finished in September, I will be having a giveaway as well...
May the blog force be with you!

PS. I am adding you to my fabric artists link, so keep up the good work, kiddo!
