The Benton-Franklin County Fair and Rodeo ended on Saturday. Gary and I attended the rodeo both Friday and Saturday evenings; on Friday with son Kevin and his wife, on Saturday with our Yakima office manager Shelly and her husband. It's a great opportunity to treat people who are special to us as we get sponsor tickets which includes a wonderful catered dinner and close-up seating to the rodeo - I mean getting dirt kicked on you and maybe even a cowboy landing almost in your lap as he's running from a bull! Earlier in the week tickets went to some of our other kids and their friends, hard-working employees, and our former business partner. The weather was great all week, making the experience even better.
Now we're looking forward to a long Labor Day weekend!
On the stitching front, I received my Gingher Sawyer scissors from The Nordic Needle last week. I really love the red and white leaf design on the handles.
I have a nice little collection of this Gingher series of scissors. They stay sharp even to the tip and have a nice weight and feel to them. And they're pretty - I love that!
Then as I was taking a turn with September (Joyful World SAL) last night, having a good time stitching and watching TV, I forgot that the middle ground was a brown section.
I just kept going with the pattern and discovered my error at the point that you can see in the pic above. Ugh! Friends, I am not going to rip this one out. However the pattern comes out at the other end will just have to do, lol!
That's about it for today. Have a lovely day!
