I spent 3 hours this morning make up a new web page for just my ornaments I make from burnt out light bulbs. I was selling them to earn enought to buy a laptop which I had always wanted and since in June I was able to fullfill that wish...I need to set a new goal of what to buy! Maybe a new fancy sewing machine...hmmmm makes my mind wander all over the place :-) Click on the title of this post and it will take you to see my babies I have created. I hope you enjoy the trip.

I got to meet fellow knitter Stephanie!!!

Over the last weekend my husband I went to visit family in Rufus, Oregon and on the way home I made arrangements to meet fellow knitter Stephanie in Hood River. When I called she was just heading out the door but agreed to come meet us in the Wal-Mart parking lot. She had said that her son had joked about "look for the tourist" well little did he know he had the right idea. We moved our car to be close to the front of the store, put up 2 chairs under a tree for shade and waited. We told people were were trying out for to become the new greeters. We had a nice visit (about 1 hour) despite the wind which actually did feel good after the heat of Rufus. I got to show her the purse I am making which she said was so much better in person than the pictures and to top it off I handed her a box, she opened and when she saw what it was...let out a squeal! That made my day!!!! I had brought her an Eeyore Lightbulb Ornament...which she had said was her favorite. Our meeting was the third person from the groups for both of us.
