This week has been kinda slow. We have just been getting stuff done around the house in anticipation of our VERY busy week next week. Next week is our county fair and we will have to be there every day to feed rabbits, and of course we hang out and watch our friends show. J shows on Monday and Tuesday. Then his friend shows on Wednesday, he has a concert at the fair on Thursday, the Championship show (which we ALWAYS watch) is on Friday and the Alumni show (we are showing) is on Saturday. Sunday is clean up and take home...Its gonna be a really busy week. Of course we still have CC every night next week too!
Last night for CC we went to Peninsula. The kids usually run the hills but it was so wet from the HEAVY downpour that we got at the start of practice they ended up running part of the tow path. They meet at Lock 29 from the old Ohio canal and run that area. I did walk for 3 miles, here are some pictures of the locks and the tow path.

I finished block 11 and my setting blocks the other day for the star quilt along:
Then I made block 12 two days ago, this is my favorite one:
Then this morning I just finished up putting it all together!:
I love it, Rich hates the colors, but I love it! I think it looks good. I am very happy with the way it came out. I honestly thought he would like it since he likes those colors, but I guess not. Oh well, I still like it. Now to just find some material to back it with and then quilt it! Thanks AmandaJean for doing the star quilt along! I can't wait till the next one!
I will try to post again before Sunday which is when I have to be at the fair to help set up our barn etc. I also have to get my wrist-band since I as an advisor get in free and help the neighbors get their chickens/ducks in. I won't be around much next week, but I will be back (after I recover!). I will leave you with a picture that J is entering in the open photography show of one of my day lillies.
