I truly have been steadily working on customer quilts and sewing a project of my own but don't want to show it yet so I haven't had a lot to post. One thing that I did this summer was have "Camp Grandma" and I invited my two older granddaughters over for some fun. Some crafts were in order, went swimming and picnicking, some walks with the lab, some wiffle ball and our main event was the Fairie Festival at Thistledown Greenhouse.
This is a wonderful greenhouse/farm and every year they sponsor a Fairie Festival that allows the kids and adults to celebrate everything fairy. The green house is kinda famous for their fairy gardens so this was a natural thing to come about I guess. The grounds are just beautiful and the kids were more than pumped about it. The first thing of the day was talking rides with the beautiful draft horses and wagon. We got on the first ride of the day and I think the girls loved the horses and ride the best.
This picture is of two of my fairies on the wagon. One fairie is wearing a lot of sun screen on her nose as she was viciously attacked by a dog about a month ago and has had plastic surgery. This has been a tough summer so far so this fairy thing was a long awaited treat! She is dealing pretty good with it all, wish we all were doing the same.
As you can see, the wings were the order of the day! This is our littlest fairy with her Mom taking our long ride through the woods. Next a picture of our lovely steads, they worked very hard in temps over 80 degrees.
