Doin' the Puyallup!
When we went to the fair last weekend in Puyallup, we had fun looking at the various exhibits and animals as well as watching the spinners, especially the one who was using a drop spindle made from an old CD and a piece of dowling. But for me, the highlight was this crazy quilt from the 1890's! The woman told us it was purchased at a garage sale for only $3.00 and is appraised now at least $8,000! Personally, I think it's priceless. What beautiful stitching!
Here's another shot of the other end. Sorry about the reflection off the glass; it was kept securely under lock and key.
The other thing that caught my eye were these elaborately decorated cakes.....done by kids! Don't those dollies look happy?
Have you ever seen a sweeter garden?
This was the prize winner in the adult competition. Isn't it realistic? I've been wondering what was used for the ice.
It would have been hard for me to know how cut this one up to serve! (It won a green ribbon.) Speaking of cakes, it's our older daughter's birthday today. I sure hope someone in Chicago baked her a cake. Happy Birthday, Jill!
