Misha and the Fair

Oh well Misha wasn't at the fair but I took this picture of her the other day and I wanted to share it with all of you. What she is sitting on is (one of) my stitching bag. I don't know how comfortable sitting q-snaps can be along with the rest of my stitching stuff but, she seems happy enought. Who needs a dog when you can have a cat guard your stash. :)


We went to the Durham Fair on Saturday. We had a nice time despite the fact that it rained Friday night into Saturday morning. By the time we got there everything had pretty much dryed out. Both of the pieces I entered came in second. I'm happy and not happy about this both at the same time. I was totally supprised that my Harry Potter bear got a second, from what I've entered in the past I thought it would get a third. I was dissapointed that the Christmas Elf Fairy didn't get First but, I'm not complaining.



I have to go out to the fair tonight after work and pick both of them up. I was going to go up last night when the fair closed but, I spent most of the day trying to get rid of a headache. I have no stitching pictures to show because of my headache. I couldn't even think of picking up anything to work on yesterday. Hopefully tonight.

Congrats on your ribbons at the faire. I think your pieces are first place in my books. As I said before I am very partial with the Harry Potter Bear. Great job. Say Hi to Misha from me and Molly. :-)

Oh well done you. I dream of winning something in a show with my stitching but we don't seem to have them round here. I do agree though, your Christmas Elf Fairy should have got First!!! x
