Well, to give you some relief from the food pictures this week, and the food pictures yet to come….
The last block of the bunny quilt. Now to get it assembled and quilted, hopefully by niece’s birthday in October.
The first block of the Vortex Afghan. This is supposed to measure 17 inches, and mine measures 24 inches. Apparently I should be using a smaller hook. Oh well, not turning back now. This might be a 4-block baby blanket, not a 6 block one. These colors also look pretty scary in this picture, they are not that bad, really.
And two lazy cats, sleeping on the afghan, when I have perfectly lovely rugs/blankets/etc. on the arms of the couch for them. Yes, they do apparently know they look picturesque.
This is my list of things I am interested in, for the IA State Fair. I am not saying I am going to eat all of these things, I am saying I am interested in them….

I am morally allergic to anything on a stick at a State Fair. In all my 8 years of working at the Minnesota State Fair, I ate 1 thing on a stick – and that was because my favorite worker from my favorite steak sandwich booth gave me a steak on a stick along with my steak sandwich one day as a special treat. I had to eat it, didn’t I? I have suffered great pangs of guilt ever since then for giving into temptation …. but that was only one time.
