There’s Something For Everyone…

At the Cobble Hill Fair you will find something for everyone…

For the baker, cook, pickler and jam maker….

image

For the men who like old farm machinery…

image

For the kids who like games, relays and plain old fashion fun…

image

For the 4-H kids and young adults to show off their hard work and their much loved animals…

image

And for the quilters to show off their stitching…

image Yup…these are mine!!  I have NEVER entered any of my quilts at the Cobble Hill Fair before. 

image

But I just HAD to enter the Settler’s Pride…after all, it has Cobble Hill written all over it! And the ribbons aren’t half bad either!  And would you believe I got two gift cards from two local Quilt Shops totaling $45!  Yippee!!  We’re going shopping!!

image Next weekend is the bigger Cowichan Valley Exhibition Fair…it’s the same kind of fair only on a much bigger scale!  I entered quilts in that one last year for the first time and it was great fun!

It’s Day FIVE In the Pick Four Book Tour!! 

I am getting nervous…three more sleeps and it’s my turn!!  Sure hope I don’t get tongue tied and mess up!  If you go over to Quilt Sue’s she is introducing Bejeweled Barb right now… Barb apparently lives on the moon!  Now that’s a tough act to follow!  AND on Barb’s post she is interviewing Quilt Sue…so hurry over to Barb’s to get all the dirt!  What a lot of hurrying…and don’t forget to leave a comment…you want to WIN this book!!  It’s a keeper!

Have a Super Sunday and Happy Quilting!~P
