Something To Crow About!



First thing this morning Pati and I stopped at this quaint little place to have a muffin. I had the Morning Glory Muffin...delicious it was made with pineapples, coconut, carrots, raisens and probably some secret ingredient. I'm gonna bring ya home one Danny I promise! It had to be one of the very best muffins I have ever had. Oh I'll bring home some extra's too for you Mom and Dad don't worry!!!! Okay so now all my sisters are going to want one. Maybe I should just place an order for a couple of dozen.




Just around the corner was this GIANT CHICKEN.....now wouldn't Sloan love this. Look how big it is compared to the house.



After shopping around Fredericksburg and a wonderful lunch....oh and I had chicken and dumplings and Pati had a German plate filled with goodies we made our way over to the hotel where we have settled in for the duration of our trip. Our teacher for camp will be Frank Bielec and let me say I'm so excited.....all I can say is wait until you see what we are going to be doing. I have now looked at oxford punch in a whole new light and we haven't even got started yet. My mind is whirling like a tornado and now I can see so many options and can tell this can be done faster than a speeding bullet in so many different ways. So that's all I'm going to tell you for now...so stop back in a day or so and see what we are making....It's going to be a blast!

Happy Trails.....Ginger

OH Good!! I have been using a Oxford Punch needle and I haven't had anyone to talk to about it. I love it and I have felt so funny without anyone to share with.

I love it and I hope you learn lots because I have wondered about how a real wool hooker like yourself would feel about it.
I can't wait to see what you learn.

It looks like you both are having a ball. Is Frank from Mosey and Me? I was just on their site and saw that they were going to be there, would love to be in that class.
