The week continues!! VBS is awesome and so is sewing camp. My kids are learning to use our sewing machine that Erik bought me many years ago(BC-which is, of course, before children). Perhaps someone will finally get some use out of it. My kids love to sew and all needlework of any kind. I find it tedious and it makes my neck hurt. I want it to look perfect and yet do not have the skills to do it perfectly. *sigh* I will be a perfect encourager for my girls. I even let Erika enter her knitting with some dropped stitches. She can be her own critic-I am so proud she taught herself to knit watching a DVD!!! It only got a white ribbon I think. However, her colored drawing of Strawberry Shortcake which was fantabulously awesome got a blue ribbon AND*****DRUMROLL****** A PURPLE GRAND CHAMPION RIBBON!!! I am so proud. Her other drawing got a red ribbon.

My sugar free cookies got a blue ribbon, my choc chip cookies got a blue ribbon, and my AWESOMELY fabulous sugar cookies only got a red ribbon. The best cookies of the three I took scored lowest...go figure. I don't care because I win $$$ and my daughter got a purple ribbon!! I am living vicariously. SOMEONE ELSE I KNOW, has a daughter that won a purple ribbon too.

Gotta go now, closets and drawers are on the docket today!! Get off the computer and do something why doncha!!

Does your VBS have cookie competitions?
You must be so proud of your girls! : )
[wistfully sighing] I always wanted to learn to sew . . .

I haven't even seen the results yet! There's no rhyme or reason for some of the decisions, we've learned from other events, so you just celebrate when it goes your way! :-) Maybe the judges had so much sugar yesterday that the sugar free just didn't have a chance!

Susie-No, I am discussing my fair entry of cookies. My daughter also entered drawings and knitting.

I ramble and therefore become unclear. It is a common occurence.

SANDY- You should definitely go have a look at the results of the fair!! ( : They still charge you to go look- it cost us $6 but I think one of the nights has free admission.
