Heitage Festival Time!
It's over for the year! The Nederland Heritage Festival began in 1973 as Nederland celebrated its 75th birthday. A committee was formed to organize events for Nederland’s Diamond Jubilee. The event was such a success that organizers decided that it should become an annual event and the Nederland Heritage Festival was born. This is truly a fun time for all; old and young. The concessions (food vendors) are set up by Tuesday at 4 pm and close on Sunday about 5 pm. The carnival rides start around 5 pm every day, except all day on Saturday & Sunday. There are craft booths set up for the weekend. Activities include a Chili Cook off, Old Car Show, a Pageant, Music Show, Art Show, etc. My DH is active in his KC group and heads up the etofee cooking.
This year, I stayed home and babysat mostly. So, I had time to work on my Postage Stamp squares. I have cut out about 600 squares so far. Have traded half of these; still waiting on some of my trades to come home. I have 215 squaes sewed together; four completed blocks and rows ready to complete. My blocks are 10" square; 36 squares each. I have a long way to go!
