Lubbock trip

Very uneventful, except...if you have a handicap placard and you park in a handicap space, be sure to display it!! I didn't and so we got a ticket. They fined us $250! That should certainly deter non-handicap placard holders from parking in those spaces. I didn't see the green ticket stuck under the windshield wiper until we were flying down the road. I pulled over into a little picnic area because the little flapping I could see was making me crazy. Whoa! I could not imagine what I'd done. But, there it was, in black, white and red. I called the number they had listed and asked the lady what can be done in a case like this. After all, I DID have that placard tucked into the sun visor! She said to just make a copy of the placard showing the number and expiration date and return it with the ticket. Not a problem. It's done and in my purse ready to be mailed.
This little picture shows a top called "Just a Little Wedding". I've made several of these and find they make great little wedding/shower gifts. I need to have this one ready by this weekend.

I've also been working on a little wallhanging called "Twist and Shout". Pictures when I get it all together.

I'd better go check on the peach cobbler I've got in the oven.

What a nasty surprise. Your lucky though as over here there's no way out of the ticket once it's been given.

love the little weeding ring.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Wow! That is a hefty fine. DH says that up here it is only $100 for that same situation.
The Little Wedding is just darling. Very nice!
Happy stitchings!
