Well, I’m all finished with Frida, so this morning I took her and entered my wall hanging into the fair exhibits.
I had so much fun trying to capture the essence of Frida, maybe not her looks, but her colorful way of life.
She will be viewed by hundreds of people, some will like her and some will not, but that’s ok, because I am pleased with the outcome.
I think I influenced my daughter and grandson to enter their projects as well.
My daughter had made the Mad Hatter’s hat into a donation box for the school play and decided to enter that. It’s a fun and unique project.
Our grandson loves to draw and he is quite good. Since boys love drawing robot type figures, that’s what his project was.
We hope our family members and friends will support us and visit the exhibits to view our projects.❤️💜❤️💜
I want to make and enter a project for our county fair. But the deadline is September 17th. So I have to hurry.
It will be a quilted wall hanging, so I really need to hurry up, actually I need to rush.
I do have the background fabric along with the face, the eyes, the hair, lips and the eyebrows.
I’ve made some felt flowers.
Now all I need is to put everything together.
Have you guessed who the person is that I am trying to put together?
All summer long the weeds have been launching a fierce attack in my garden area. So I’m trying to counter attack and my efforts are paying off.
Weeding can be good therapy, but not in 103º temperatures.
Luckily, I was rewarded with a few creatures coming through my little piece of land.
First, I saw a bunny rabbit resting quietly in a corner. I’ve seen him before, he visits frequently. Sometimes a friend’s dog will chase it, but he can’t catch him; the bunny is too quick.
Dragon flys have been cruising around my plants. My favorite is the orange colored one.
A strange looking one showed up this year for the first time. It has a baby blue body and it’s wings are transparent with some black rectangles on them. But unfortunately my picture does not do it justice.
Time to get back to my weeding.
