Another Update

Pro-Show is done, and went very well. We were home mid-afternoon on Sunday - not too bad. But did it ever rain hard Sunday morning!!!

Katie got 2nd place with a leather belt she made, 1st place on some tatting, 2 place in junior poultry judging (we aren't sure how she did that well yet LOL), and 8th place in poultry showmanship. I'm proud of how well she did, considering this is the first time she's had anyone to compete against.

Our whole 4-H club did very well! We had 1 girl go onto the grand championship of judging competition, another go onto the grand championship of showmanship competition, and one of our horse kids got grand champion in 2 events. Unfortunately we weren't in the top 10 clubs point wise ... but we had FUN!

Katie has her team for the Curl for Cancer event on the 7th. Herself, 2 other girls, and my sister. Calling themselves The Fabulous Four, wearing purple tops and pink fuzzy scarves. Now the donation collection for that begins.

I'm knitting on thrummed mittens still. Have the thumb left to do on my second pair. Two craft sales coming up to get ready for.

Also trying to gather up things to put in a Fall Gift Box that the 4-H kids are selling tickets on on the 25th. There's a cruise ship coming in, and there's a whole bunch of stuff being planned for our water front area. Anyway, was looking for a box or basket to put all the goodies in ... when I had the bright idea to ask the prop guy from Moby Dick for a box. So we have a box from that set :)

Busy busy busy ... that's my life in a nutshell!

Congratulations, Katie! You did awesome. Sorry I never made it down.

Where and when are the craft shows, Dorothy? I missed the Christmas craft show here in Middleton. Duh!
