The house is on the Historic Preservation list, and the sign can be seen by the front door. It is huge, and has so many beautiful features! Next door to the right, was the Carriage House which has been made into another beautiful residence.
Am feeling somewhat better. Strep turned to bronchitis, which I am fighting off now... As for stitching, I had to put away Ribbon Topiary because I took it apart 3 times and could no longer stand to work on it!! Maybe in the spring... Back to working on commitment stitching... no pics...

I am not feeling at all well this morning. Had a tiny scratchy throat last night when I went to bed, but this morning my tonsils are so swollen, it spread to that wiggly thing in the back of my throat and that is almost swollen to where I cannot breathe! Of course, today is the day I have to sub for my boss lady... If it is slow, I am going to see about the former person taking it today... the one we had to let go cause she was so slow... And I am making an appointment with my FP, to get on antibiotics asap!(there goes my overtime...) This is the start of some uncomfortable times... unfortunately... But I may get in some extra stitching time!! That could be good!TTFN.

On Saturdays, I usually go stitch at my LNS, Dyeing to Stitch, for the day. Since this weekend is their Harvest of Friendship Retreat, we had visitors from out of town come in during a break. I enjoyed talking with a few of them. One girl from Iowa City (Hi Trisha!) was intrigued by the piece I was working on--I had just started The Ribbon Topiary by Knotted Tree Designs. And her buddy, Margaret (Hi Margaret!) needed to know where she could get some trim like in a piece in the newly released Blackbird 'Joyeus Noel' book, so I sent them to Hancock's since it was fairly close and easy to find from the shop. Tina from Shepherd's Bush, Charland and her daughter, Sydney, also dropped by. I mentioned that Thursday night, I met two designers. One was Alma from Blackbird Designs, and the other was Charland. Here is a picture I had taken with them, from left to right: Charland, her daughter Sydney, me and Alma. As you can see, I usually do NOT like my pictures that are taken... I am so lucky to have a graphics program!! hehehehe....
I must go now... I got Pride and Prejudice today from the library and hopefully will be able to watch some of it tonight, unless I fall asleep. I did a LOT today and am very very tired. Still am doing laundry...
