Last weekend we had glorious weather on Saturday so decided to walk over to the OFFA. This annual event is a kind of combination Spring Home & Garden Show plus Rodeo plus Carnival with lots of wurst and beer and kids screaming on scary looking rides. We spent time browsing at outdoor furniture for our terrace and bought a Kugelspirale to mesmerize our houseguests. Check out this hat booth we found! I also located a Bernina booth where I managed to speak enough German to order an English manual for my new Bernette 90e Nähmaschine. ( The book that came with mine was in French, German, Italian and Spanish. Only the book cover and machine box were in English.) One rainy week later I have the book already! The sun is shining again today so I’m heading out to enjoy Spring! K Q:-)
