On Wednesday I picked up 15 ornaments I had dropped off at the finisher's back in August. My goal is to be able to fill up a metal 250-ornament tree I bought two years ago. I'm about half way there! Here are a few of my new ones. The others are posted to my photo album.

Levi Stubbs, 1936-2008
Levi Stubbs, the lead singer of the Four Tops whose voice was featured on hits "Baby I Need Your Loving" and "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)," died on Friday, October 17th at the age of 72. Stubbs had been ill with a stroke and cancer.
I was fortunate enough to see the Four Tops in concert over a dozen times and they were my favorite singing group. I was their #1 fan! Levi has been silenced by death but the beauty of his music will live forever.
Prior to going on vacation I received this adorable bag from Becky. She picked the perfect fabric which is not only patriotic but has some adorable cows. I just love it! THANK YOU!
Here are the other two ornaments I finished while on vacation in Lake Tahoe. Both are from the newly released Just Cross Stitch 2008 Ornament issue.

I can't believe our week stay in South Lake Tahoe is coming to an end. We had such a great time this week in spite of the cold and snow that greeted us the day we arrived. The weather improved immensely and we got a chance to explore, walk, take pictures and just relax. Tomorrow morning we are heading home and will probably just take our time and enjoy the drive. I'll miss my "friends" here...LOL!

Hubby and I had another terrific day. We had breakfast at our favorite place, Driftwood Cafe and then walked over to Harrah's and played a quick game at the slots machine. Our limit today was $10 each...hehehe...we're such high-rollers!
We then drove into Carson City, Nevada where the weather was a wonderful 73 degrees. Felt good to finally shed our sweater and jackets. We browsed Borders, Michaels, and the Walmart Super Center. We had lunch at La Salsa Mexican Grill and then got back in the car and headed back towards South Lake Tahoe. We stopped at Logan Shoals Vista Point and took a short hike and some photos.
