Weekend recap and a small vent

Well, with all the running around I did, I am surprised I got any stitching done. I did get a little. I got a lot done with my fox. He wasn't nearly this good looking at the beginning of the weekend. Plus I was sitting there and realized it wouldn't be THAT hard to take his head, plop it on one of the dog bodies and have a Chanceypants for my Brittercup quilt. I don't know, I am toying with it. And I even managed to work on Forest Snowfall. I am almost done my house and the tree has some needles on it. I want to get that done this week, so I can get it framed for the fair.

Speaking of the fair, I need to say this. I have waited for the fair book to come out for a few months. After last year, when it took FOREVER and we had to talk to the fair people to get classes to put my stuff in, they were going to redo the fair book. So I was very hopeful that we would have something more clear than what it was last year, because that took forever. It came out, I took a look and the classes didn't change for cross stitch. Now, I don't want to complain, because Lord knows,we have a good fair. It doesn't cost money to enter the fair, and there are lots of classes. But it would be nice if they updated the classes to show more modern lines of the art form. This is the fair book, cross stitch is on page 9.

Now you tell me what class I can enter Houses in? Houses and buildings is a good choice, and an obvious one, but I don't know if that's the best.

Rachel - I sure you get your HoHRH entered somewhere, because it is so strikingly beautiful. I just finished House #2, and my colors are alot more muted. Yours just seems to pop, and great frame too.

Gosh, your fair organizers don't leave you any options other than to enter your piece in the category for "Places and Houses" (if I remembered the name correctly). I hope you enter it anyway. Good luck!!!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
