State Fair Diet

I'm so bummed. The Minnesota State Fair is over for another year, and I only got there once. My sister and I arrived early on the first day and did it up good. We stayed late, ate our way from one end of the fairgrounds to the other, and picked out some good boyfriends for each other along the way.

I think I gained five pounds. Over a period of thirteen hours I ate: half a foot long, half a carmel pecan roll, half a dozen chocolate chips cookies, several glasses of milk, an ear of corn, a box of popcorn, two beers, a gyro sandwich, lemonade, a pork chop and a vanilla malt.

It's what I didn't eat that haunts me. No pronto pup. No french fries. No cream puff or Tom Thumb donuts. What was I thinking? Now I have to wait a whole year. In the meantime, it's back to Weight Watchers.

(Oh yeah. The quilts on a stick in the Creative Activities Building were fantastic. Did you see them?)

Hey, Cheri --

I went to the Creative Arts Center especially to see the quilts. Of course I wish there had been more of them. But they were fabulous. I was very impressed by the number of quilts submitted that were hand quilted. At the Minnesota Quilt Show in Rochester, it seems to me, the majority of work was machine quilted. It's great to know that many people are doing wonderful hand quilting. I know you're one of them. Thanks for keeping up that beautiful skill.
