Final day for fair projects

This is it, the last day to get those projects done for fair! I remember those days from when I was in 4-H but I don't remember getting to do all these cool things my granddaughters are experiencing! For me it was a cooking project and a sewing project but the most time was spent on our calves. I also showed horses so additional time there. No one in my immediate family had any sewing experience so I am thankful I learned all that I did. My paternal grandmother sewed, crocheted and embroidered and I learned from her also. I remember it was difficult at times as she was left handed. She loved horses as much as I did so I never complained because in my world she was the best. Still to this day I think of her at times when I am out in the buggy or handstitching a project. I wonder what memories I am leaving for my grandchildren. I hope they include to always be kind, not to judge, make do with what you have and to take joy and seek peace in each and every day.

No worries my friend - you are leaving AMAZING memories for your grand kids. They have a grandma who loves them enough to give them her time. What a precious gift!
