Since last weekend was a long weekend, we took the boys out to see my parents.  You'd think since they're only 100 miles away, we'd get there more often.  Doesn't seem to work out that way though.  First thing my dad shows me is a floor stand he's working on.  I sent him a link about two years ago of what I was interested in.  It was just a little bitty picture on the website.  But, he's been working on one.  He just can't decide how I'm going to be able to attach my fabric to the huge dowell he bought to go with it.  

Sunday, we went to the Nebraska State Fair.  We hadn't gone since it moved to a more central location in the state last year.  Heck, we hadn't gone in years when it was in Lincoln.  These are my favorite handsome young men riding the ferris wheel for the first time.   They had a ball!  It's too bad that ticket prices are so high.  They could have ridden more rides!  

We also walked through the Open Class exhibits.  I was terribly dissappointed by the entries.  I guess next year, I will have to get motivated and get some framing done so I can enter lots of stuff!
Here's the other ride they went on.  If you look closely, you can see Jakob's green shirt!  Josh is right beside him. 

This project started out as a travel project.  There is no way I was going to be able to stitch over one on 28 ct fabric riding down the highway.  So I had this one all kitted up and ready to go.  When I checked my e-mail a little while ago, the announcement had shown up that part 2 is due to come out so it seems I'm just in  time.

Since I finished this part, I pulled Winter Watergarden back out of the black hole all my WIPs reside in and finished beading part 8.  I've started one of the little birds on part 9 but haven't gotten very far yet.  For the most part part 9 is 2 little birds and a bunch of back stitched leaves.  Shouldn't take very long to stitch them up and move onto the next project.  That will probably be part 8 of Purple Garden.  That one just goes through part 9 so it is very close to being done. 

I should probably go stitch!

Looks like your handsome boys had a lot of fun! Love your mystery project with carrots. Does it have a name and a link?
