The Carbon County Fair is almost upon us. Siobhan and Seamus have modeled their sewing projects and await the final judgement. The 4-H lambs (two market lambs for Siobhan, two market lambs for Seamus and one Hampshire buck lamb for Siobhan) are fat and getting their Fair coats on. Here is Maeve helping to wash the lambs.

Siobhan the 4-Her and the Carbon County Fair

We are back in the Fair business.  After a hiatus of several years, we are once again fully involved with our  county fair.  Siobhan is nine, and old enough for 4-H.  She took three projects–steer, sewing and shooting sports. Of course, since we are the “flock contractors” for the annual mutton busting, we never really left the fair scene.  Still–there’s nothing like having one of your own competing and participating.One of the great things about attending the fair is the opportunity to connect with old friends from all around the county. At the style review, I could sense my Mom checking the seams. She was a sewing leader in our community for 32 years. If she asked, “Are YOU satisfied with that?” you’d know that she wasn’t.

Someone asked me what I had been up to.  I replied, “I don’t know–last time I looked up, it was the middle of April.”
