21 September 2008 Oklahoma LIVE! 2008 State Fair

What a BLAST! Spent the day at the Fair, first walking around checking everything out, then spent the rest of the day at the Spinning demonstration Booth in the Agtropolis Building. This is the display set up specifically for kids to see, touch and participate in Oklahoma Agriculture. I got to sit and spin and talk the whole time. Barely had time for eats, drinks and potty break. The weather was PERFECT, so the Fair was packed. Kids and parents engaged in the spirit of the Fair, yep, it was a good day.

Oh yeah, got to see my yarn on display with ribbons and eveything. But because they were behind glass, photos didn't come out very good. I'll just post my first place yarn here:
I guess in the lower left corner of the picture you can see the top of my "Willie Wool" and Willie's picture!

Congratulations Laura! Isn't having our work in The OK State Fair just too much fun?!!! I was so proud to see our Log Cabin Spinners so well represented! This was my 1st time participating in a State Fair and I was so excited! (I spun in the Hobbies and Crafts Building on the 1st Friday.)
We are doing the Happy Dance! Congratulations!

Hey Laura -
I am trying to get an email or something to you -- I am up for a GS position here and they would like to contact you for a reference. I unfortunately do not have your phone number and your mailbox is apparently full and they cannot get a message to you.
