Meet Me At the Fair?
It's Shameless Commerce Tuesday, and today I'm a bit nostalgic. All over the Midwest, there are county fairs and 4-H Achievement Days in progress. Lake County 4-H Achievement Days was the highlight of my summer vacation when I was a kid. And then there was the SD State Fair, with stays in the 4-H dorms, and a chance to meet new friends from all over the state. What fun!
So today I'm featuring one of my fabric wall art items from my Etsy shop. The photos shows an 8"'x10" fabric wall hanging featuring Kokka fabric. https://www.etsy.com/listing/75710903/carnival-ferris-wheel-nursery-8-x-10. The ferris wheel was my favorite ride in the midway.
My husband and I attended all the NE State Fairs from 1999 until it moved from Lincoln to Grand Island last year. One year I won the Best in Lot award in garment sewing for a prairie dress ensemble I made for granddaughter Katy.
It was similar to this one I made a few years later for granddaughter Madeline. Katy's was blue. Madeline's was pink.
