The Payoff

Clayton entered a rug at the county fair.  He received Grand Champion!!  His rug went to the State fair in Salem and he received Grand Champ again!  It's super exciting!  His rug had 400 ends that he threaded individually through the loom.  It took him longer to dress the loom than it did to weave the rug!  His pigs did well too!  He picked up his $818 check yesterday for the pig he sold at auction and we had bacon from the other pig over the weekend. 

Worth noting:  David made the shuttle Clayton is using in the top picture!
