I went back to the fair again on Sunday to do the tatting demos...We had alot of interest and saw alot of people. The building was packed. We talked to alot of people and invited them to come to our meeting. It was alot of fun. I knew something was up though when about 12 policemen came into the building and were standing around talking about what to do. As it turned out, Oprah was judging a food contest in the back of the room that we were in. I got some pictures but they weren't very good. The police were there to keep everyone back. They shut the building down for an hour while she was there. Once she exited, everything returned to normal....It was a fun day with the girls but it was rainy and cold and I didn't get to walk around very much afterwards. I'm trying to decide if I want to go back again. I still didn't see everything I wanted to. I know if I do go back, I will not be taking the train again. It took us 2 1/2 hours to go by train. OMG, what an ordeal!
These aren't great pictures but it's the best I could do. I couldn't get close. I couldn't even see the shot I was taking. I had to hold my camera up above my head and just shoot in the direction she was. I was lucky I even got her in the picture.

Nancy took this one, she snuck in somewhere to take this one!
