County Fair on a Summer Day

Yesterday was our big day at the Howard County Fair. We went in the morning, and the weather was just right, with a small breeze that kept us comfortable. We saw lots of animals, big and small, but the ducklings were a favorite. We stood and watched them for quite a while!

And of course we had to say hello to the sheep. It's amazing the conversations that she had with the animals :)

And of course, Grandma got to look at the quilts! There were some beautiful applique quilts, and even some antique quilts were entered.

I recognized this one from Bunny Hill Designs :)

And I thought this vintage looking child's quilt was just adorable :)

There were also some beautiful cross stitch there, I think this one was my favorite one though ~ I love the spider web in the bottom corner.

I took many more quilt pictures, but they all didn't come out so well since they were behind the plastic, and my photography skills are limited, but you get the idea.

After the fair, we spent some time in the pool enjoying family ~ I think it was a perfect summer day :)

Enjoy the day!

I have never seen plastic that way for quilt displays. Guess it works to keep them clean.
