First sewing project

Some of you may remember awhile ago I posted that Cameron gave me a sewing machine for my birthday. I don't know how to sew but I wanted one so I could learn. I have not used it and Cameron keeps asking me when I am going to start sewing. Well today was the day. I pulled it out, read the manual and starting sewing. The end result was this blanket I made for my niece Anneka. I know it is probably the easiest thing to make but I was proud of myself. It is not at all perfect. As you can tell it is not completely straight but I think it is pretty good for my first sewing project. I can't wait to make more and try making other stuff. Fabric stores here I come!!

State Fair

On Friday Cameron and I went to the State fair with our friends Stacy and Casey. It was a lot of fun. We of course had to get our picture next to the police car and then as we were walking around we saw that you could get your picture with sea lions. Cameron thought it was so cool and really wanted to do it, so we did. It was pretty cool. As soon as you stand against the stage they put their head on your shoulder. Who knew you could do such cool things at the State fair.
