A fair update again...

I worked at the fair today in the culinary department. I checked on my quilts and afghans right before my shift started. This is what I got...

My denim quilt got 1st place. From what I heard - the judges absolutely loved this quilt. Very cool!
This baby quilt got 3rd place.

The afghan I made Michael got 2nd place.

My ripple afghan - I didn't think would do anything but....
got 1st place as well! I can pick them up Saturday night after 9 p.m.

It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
