A 4th without a fifth....

but we did have wine!

We had the best 4th of July! It was spent going to Amish country in Holmes county in Berlin, Ohio. We met up with two other couples in an RV park in which none of us have met face to face. Us girls are in an online fiber art group. We had a great time showing our trades and projects over the years. I even showed the girls how to do some roping for projects.

Left to right is Norma Jean, myself and Gabriela.

We also went into Millersburg where they put on an old fashioned celebration. On the town square, they were doing some weaving in a round hoop. So cool!

and met up with Angie from the fiber art group and her family. She has two of the sweetest little girls!

We had typically a 4th of July picnic with hamburgers and hot dogs. The guys drank beer while we drank wine. We also got a little sunburnt. We hated to end the evening as we had so much fun, but we had a 2 1/2 hour trip home. There is nothing like good food, good company and a fine wine!

It looks like you all had such a great time. I have followed all of you on FAT! I don't trade much due to the cost of postage, but I love looking at all the cool stuff the trades produce!
