July heat wave, Show opening and County fair.

What a week-end.
Friday's night opening.
Saturday 5 am getting my flower entries  ready for the fair.
Gathering my flowers, paintings, photography and art quilts
Getting to the fairgrounds by 8:30.
Whew .
Thank goodness for my son and grandsons
They helped me carry everything inside.
At Friday's opening of Hoosiers Roads & Rivers
This is what caught the crowds eyes.
I am so glad they like my art quilts.
I enjoy making quilts from my paintings. 
Sunday afternoon I went to the Fair.
My Grandsons did great.
Grand Champion's and Reserve Champion's.
Great  kids.
I work hard to keep up with them.
5 am Saturday I thought maybe just skipping it this year.
Not an option though.
My Art Quilt received Reserved Champion.
A Sunset Photograph Grand Champion.
In the floral Department.
The succulent planter Grand Champion
plus best of show.
I forgot to mention it is a small fair.
I love giving my county something good to look at.
Plus it gets me some time with the red heads.
They get to camp out at the fair all week.
Saturday at close they were heading
back to the camper at 10 pm.
 The food strands gave them free food.
They did not want to throw it away.
Being 6 'plus they are always hungry.
Happy boys.
