Ahhh, the memories... is the week of the county fair, and everyone is on edge. Sewing projects aren't finished, the cooking projects haven't been decided on, the steers need to get adjusted to the show halters...

The Riley County Fair starts this week. And why, you may ask, does MandiMoo care about that?

Because I have been TEACHING SEWING LESSONS! Yes, for the past six weeks, I have had the pleasure of spending 1.5 hours each week with two lovely young ladies who are learning to sew. We started with reusable snack bags, made beach towel totes, and today finished pajama pants--just in time to be entered into the county fair this Thursday!

And I am a nervous wreck. All of those feelings of preparing for the county fair came flooding back as I was helping them prep for talking with the judge. I hope the best for these two sweet, eager, inquisitive, fun girls!

Thanks, A & M, for letting me help you with your first fair sewing projects. Good luck on Thursday!

  2. Thanks Mandi - they have loved every minute of it! They were very excited about their PJ pants and wore them to bed last night even though it was 100 degrees. :-)
    As we drove away yesterday they asked....what project are we going to do next? I am thrilled to see them excited about sewing and hopefully they will realize the endless possibilities. Thanks for making it so enjoyable for them!
