A Fair Day

Here in Syracuse, New York, the end of summer means the New York State Fair is in town. Every year, the fair hosts a taste of all things New York . . . from horticulture to livestock to entertainment. So much to see all in one place.

And, of course, there's the food. Some of it makes your heart stop just to think about eating it.

And some items are long-standing favorites. I must admit, I have a weakness for cotton candy, but only during the State Fair!

My husband prefers the deep-fried dough. But not just any fried dough--it has to be from The Villa, an A-frame structure at the entrance to the midway known for bright lights, long fast-moving lines, and loud popular music.

The only item on the menu: pizze fritte. Two feet of dough, deep fried and rolled in sugar. It's like a super long donut or a Mexican churro.

You gotta love it!

On a separate topic, I received a package from Island Batiks last week.

It arrived, and I've been digging in. I'm pleased to announce my participation in Quilted in Honor. I'm in the process of creating a quilt and pattern. Once it's complete the pattern will be a free download, from the Quilted in Honor site.

As a military spouse, I'm so pleased to be able to support Operation Homefront. I hope you'll follow along as I post my progress making the quilt. Once the quilt is complete, it will travel across the country with this extraordinary fundraising effort.

Happy Stitching!
