The Marin County Fair

This weekend we walked over to check out the Marin County Fair. I must say, I'm not a fan of "the fair" in general, but we couldn't not go with it so close by. It wasn't bad, but still not my cup of tea. I do enjoy the animals though. There were some lovely Jersey cows with big brown eyes, and these sweet piggies too. The artwork display was pretty big and mostly kids' stuff. I liked that. It's nice to see so many kids' things on display for a change.
Anyway, we sat by the lagoon and watched the fireworks & the hills were gorgeous as the sun went down. It was a nice evening out for sure. And while we're on the subject of farm animals, I thought I'd show you my second attempt at a Gadget Sheep. I think this one turned out really cute. I'm going to make up a pattern for him and perhaps sell it in the local knitting shop and probably in my Etsy store.
I've been super busy trying to get my booth together to apply for the Farmer's Market so I haven't been adding much to my shops. I hope to finish my logo quilt today and soon be able to post a tutorial so you can make one too. I spent ALL day yesterday just quilting the background, eugh. Maybe I should have just purchased a banner, hahaha.Tomorrow I get to start knitting my alpaca hooded scarf. Wish me luck! It's going to be a challenge.
