Phillies Fob Finished

I got Bill’s key chain finished just in time for us to take a tour of the ballpark yesterday! Turned out nice – I lined it & instead of gluing as suggested, I did a blanket stitch to connect the backing to make it more durable.

As we watched the introduction video shown to tour groups, we saw Bill hanging the sign that I made in 2004 that read, “From The Vet to The Vault”. Veteran’s Stadium was the Vet where they had played for many years & 2004 was the inaugural season for the new Citizen’s Bank Park. We had hoped that the new nickname would become “The Vault” & we could say we started it. One of our announcers, Larry Anderson, said on air that he liked the name but it never caught on. It was quite fun seeing Bill & our sign yesterday in the Phillies video!

With the key chain done, now I’m moving to the Ort Box, the spring project at our ANG chapter – until the hundred bears arrive so we can stuff them for seminar.
