Bill wanted to go for a drive today and this is what we saw. I drove across Holston Mountain and into Damacus VA. Below is Backbone Rock. You can walk all the way across the top. I don't know how long it is, but it takes a while to get across. There is a picnic area there and just a beautiful place.A little church in Shady Valley, TN

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjmXydINguQ These children are brothers and sisters. They won 1st place in a contest with entries from all over the nation. The Today Show had them on right after they won. This is their new video. They live in Bluff City, my little town!
Second place on my stained glass window afghan.
First place on "Dolly."
First place on my knitted socks.
First place on crocheted baby booties.
Her flag afghan won a third place ribbon. I think it deserved more.
And her ripple.
A pair of her knittted socks won a second place ribbon.

I wanted to post this morning and tell you why I haven't posted. :-) One of my grandsons (Ryan) has been with me for a week. The week before that was full of Dr's appointments and such. It's been a busy summer. Keeping the grass mowed has been a full time job because of all the rain. My garden consisted of two tomato plants and three cucumber plants but that was enough to keep us supplied. I did have a garden across the road from me. My sweet neighbor that always had a garden passed away a year ago and her son put out her garden and told me it was mine. I have had some good things out of that garden. I thought that was so sweet. It feels like fall here this morning. The air is so crisp and cool. I think I am ready! The fair open this week. My friend Carolyn and I will be going on Thursday. That is senior day. I will let you know how that goes! The wave petunia above is on my front porch.

This is my latest knitted sock. The other one is completed except closing up the toe. They will go to the fair.
Here is Carolyn's pie safe. She sold her hutch and bought this pie safe. It is really old, but in good shape. I like it a lot.
And I knitted this doll . It's a little strange being it's arms and legs are so skinny. It will be one of my fair entries. I named her "Dolly"....only because of the hair! :-)
This flag afghan was made by my friend Carolyn. It will go to the fair also. I think it will win a blue ribbon. What do you think?
