Christmas Ornament Swap for Faye


I got delivery confirmation that Faye received her ornament in the COSE. She hasn't posted the photo yet, but I'm going to go ahead post to my blog. I enjoyed making this one. My stitching now is pretty much exchange stitching. That's ok with me cause I enjoy it.

My friend Diane and I went to Oktoberfest in Tulsa. It was a cheap trip for us because the shuttle was free for seniors and admission to the festival was free until 4:00 pm. We had a good time, but it was so cold. The wind was blowing so hard that it felt colder than it really was. Great entertainment, great food, and a really great time.

Today D and I are going to a birthday reception for one of the ladies who goes on the bus trips with us. She turns 90 years old on Friday. I tease her that I'm a day older than her because my birthday is on Thursday. This is the lady who wears the interesting hats. I'm looking forward to seeing if she wears one today.

Enjoy the day. I'm off to do a little stitching right now.

Oh, man! I wish I could have gone to Oktoberfest!! I'm originally from Tulsa, though I live in NJ now. Some of my friends here are looking around for an Oktoberfest to go to. And, they found one. at the racetracks. It's small, and costs 50 bucks just to get in. And seems to offer only 3 foods. Blah, I say, to that! Maybe I'll plan a trip for next October. ;)

Also, I just LOVE that finish! What a cute design!

I also love the LK sampler you did. The colors in it are really nice.
