The Kress family of Chiefland brought all of these ties to the Levy County Quilt Museum after reading about our contest in HardisonInk. Voting on the Ugly Tie Contest will start Saturday (Aug. 1). Come by and cast your vote. There are many different ties other than these to vote upon. We’ve selected several for the Ugly Tie Contest. Most of these 90 ties were not ugly.
Quilting continued on the quilt in the frame. We just might finish it by the end of August. Alice Mae and Ailien settled on the design for possibly the next quilt in the frame. Saturday, Ailien worked on cutting the fabric so she can sew it together when she’s at the Museum. She started with the fabric and pattern and by now, she has changed the pattern and switched out some of the fabric. It will be interesting to compare the original pattern with the finished top in a few weeks. During the week, our friend, Marlene from Pennsylvania came in to quilt for the day. We enjoy her visit and really appreciate her help with the quilting. Thursday, the Kress’s stopped by with a box of neckties for us. They had noticed the contest when the read this column in HardisonInk.com. Ann and Cleo have their eyes on all those ties from the Kress family in hopes of creating something with them. I’ll keep you informed. Thanks for the ties. Good luck in the contest. Correctional Officer Greg and the boys from Lancaster Correctional Institution's Youthful Offender Program were out and managed to get the yardwork done before the daily downpour. Thanks Lancaster. ~
Alice Mae has been thinking of Christmas. She completed this quilt over the summer. ~
Marlene has been busy quilting and catching us up with what's new in her life. Thanks for spending the day with us.

“I thought we would have another business join us at the last minute, but that fell through,” he continued. “That’s OK. Sharon (Hardison) and I have plans for contests in September and October. The October fun is with an advertiser. I plan to contact them with an offer to participate soon.” The September contest is still in its formative stages too. The publisher said he intends to work more at adding new advertisers and having current sponsors renew their annual contracts. “I’m very pleased with the HardisonInk.com mascots – Goldy and Inky,” Hardison said. “Those cats have natural talent. Combined with some special cat training, those two can do anything. And they are very happy to be working for the best daily news website that covers the Tri-County Area and beyond."
