Farm Chicks

I don’t need to tell you we were wet, tired and crabby when we finally left home.

I kept telling myself, “this isn’t the last show you are ever going to do, its okay to leave some treasures for next time.” Yet it always seems reasonable to me that if there is still space then it might as well be filled, of course I haven’t won any contests for good reasoning …

Of course there is all the other incidentals that go along with leaving home for a few days. We pulled out of the driveway about the time we were suppose to be pulling into Spokane. Other than the fact I held my breath the whole way, full of trepidation that Dumbo (the rv) would leave us stranded on the side of the road and we would miss the whole event, (like the last trip we took on that highway) the trip was uneventful. We actually arrived before the doors opened so I guess you could say we exceeded our goal!

Just an empty building waiting for us.

Progressing nicely,

I didn’t actually see how he made it out from under there , but these guys seemed to have it under control…

My booth finished,

It was a wonderful show, one of my only regrets is that we were so busy that I didn’t have time to go around to all the booths and look at everything!

The little prize my friend Betty helped me get ready for the first 25 of you that came through and said,

“I read your blog”

Some of the Farm Chicks I happened to get a picture of,

Serena, to who I would like to say “Thank You!”

I appreciate your hard work at making this the most amazing show ever!

To those of you that were at the show,

I would like to say, “Thank You”, it was so fun getting to see you, talk to you, and to put faces with names.

And to my sister Terri and dear friend Robin, not to mention Dave!


No way could I have done it without you!
