A Lovely Birthday Gift!


Happy Wednesday peeps!  Sharing today with you a non-stamping item, so bear with me!  I received a big box in the mail last week from my sweet friend Christy, and inside was this wonderful stitched wall hanging of a Baltimore oriole:



She remembered that I liked orioles, so she had her mom sew this incredible creation!  I had a club meeting on Monday night and a couple of the girls are avid quilters, and they were as impressed as I was!   I am just thrilled…what a special, thoughtful gift!!  I just love it, and Cassidy even was enthralled with it..but she liked the butterflies best!  Thank you so much, Christy!  I have just the place to hang it, too!


We are heading to the Solanco Fair today to see the farm animals, pumpkins and tractors!  Enjoy your day!

Great birthday gift!
My eyes really popped open when you mentioned the Solanco Fair. I'm wondering if that is in Lancaster County, because that's near me!:-)
