Placings

I entered just a few items at the Washington County Fair in Oregon.

Not bad for a first showing. 2 firsts and 3 seconds out of 5 projects. The show looked pretty small though. I attribute this to the county fair requiring that items be turned in 17 days before the fair started. Yes, that is excessive and YES it contributed to the entries being very very low. Hopefully the open show superintendent learned a lesson from this. Who am I kidding, no lesson will be learned. People are stubborn.

Peachy Keen

I traded some tatting lessons for 4 lids full of peaches. Some of the peaches were GIANT. This one in particular was huge and juicy. I went to work on Sunday and peeled, pitted, and chopped 3 of the lids. This resulted in enough peaches for a dish of peach crisp. . .

I chopped the last lid of peaches this morning and froze them. I think I might try peach butter with the last bag. But I have time to decide on that last one. :)

Sock Hunter Episode 92: Yucca Lovers

With fearsome determination, I set off in search of my latest quarry. The *yucca socks, being my quarry, were evading me masterfully. I continued to pursue them through verdant leaves and over tangled roots. Quickly, quickly. With great speed and faster camera reflexes, I bounced my way ever closer to the yucca socks. Though they did their best to elude me, I pursued. Once on the trail of socks, there is little that can dissuade me.

Finally, I cornered the socks near their favorite nesting site. Yucca are one of my least favorite plants. Yet, yucca socks do love yucca. Thus it is my duty to capture even yucca socks.

With little fanfare, but much resentment, the socks paused long enough for me to swing my camera into focus. Thus, the yucca socks were captured.

Until next time, this is your Sock Hunter, happily walking away from the yucca and signing off.
