Happy 4th of July and UFO's

Happy 4th of July!

I hope all of my American friends have enjoyed a Happy 4th Of July celebration today. My hubby had to work today so I spend the afternoon in my Summer Palace and sewed up a storm. I've almost got the "My Blue Heaven" blocks sewn together. Then it will be on to the borders.

I was reminded the other day of the deadline for entering items in the county fair. I entered for the first time last year and was awarded five ribbons. That was so much fun I was looking forward to this year's fair. Well, when I started to think of what I wanted to enter I realized I only had two finished projects. Wow! I have done a lot of piecing of quilt tops this year, but that is as far as the projects got. Bummer! It really isn't worth my while to just enter two items when I think of the entrance fee and the cost of the gas (It is about a 40 min. drive one way to get to the fair grounds). I will just have quit kicking myself for the lack of finishes and get on the ball so to speak. UFO's had better watch out!

I love the Americana picture! Is that a little quilt? Don't feel bad about completed tops, none of the ones I have completed this year are good enough for our fair! So I won't be entering either! Oh and the Summer Slush looks so yummy, I am going to try it!
