Fair Thee Well...

July is Fair Time in San Diego....
and QIAD was there!!!!



My QIAD friend Dorie helped me to meet and greet,
which was LOTS of fun.


I always love seeing the knitted clothing for little ones...


...and the incredble cross stitch too.


I became friends with this sweet lady.
She is 93 and took me by the hand to show me this....


Her daughter won Best in Show for her incredible lace work.

Just amazing...both my new friend and the prize winning lace.

The "Theme" of the fair was outer space.
The quilts were inspiring.


I loved this wonderful little boys quilt...hmmm,
something I might think about making someday.

Here is my friend's prize winning quilt.

Congrats Bev!!!!




Here would be my award for the
"There is something for everyone" at the fair.

A creative interpretation of the Royal Wedding!!!!

All in All a very good time.
