Morning stitching and planning

Today has been another warm day in North Georgia and the pollen all of a sudden fell all at one time. Yesterday, literally, there was no pollen on the car....today.....coated thickly. My eyes are puffy and the Zyrtec and Singulair are on the morning routine list now.

I do feel that I got to accomplish  finish many things around the homestead and my journal book that contains the old-fashioned hand-written list for today has more checked off than non checks, so life is good.

This morning I almost finished the left lower quarter of This Too Shall Pass and loved the filigree design upon finishing. I have a couple of stitches left on the little bird and then finish lower right corner and TA-DAH!  my frame should be arriving about that day and Body Guard and myself will be off to frame another.
The Williamsburg Red and Williamsburg Blue Weeks Dye fibers are really 2 of my favorites and you can tell as this will most likely go in the keeping room.

I'm sipping on a cold Dr. Pepper right now and reading......reading more on Boston!
Yep, that's coming up soon, in fact about 5 days we'll be on a vacation to Boston to see the city. This will be Bodyguard's first ever visit to Boston and my second only.

My mouth is watering now for that fresh seafood by the sea and strolling through Old Town with my honey.

Now that I can take pics again with more storage space in Picasa (crazy but Google has no other choice for visual lovers like me) , I'll be sure to take my laptop and camera so that I can journal here and keep you up to date on our finds.

Well till later~~ stay safe and have some fun!


  1. Hi Jennifer :)
    TTSP is looking so good :)

    I can relate to the swollen eyes..the pollen is just terrible. I can't believe how thickly it has covered eveyrthing and the clouds of it just blowing in the air.

    Oh, have fun in Boston :) I look forward to hearing about it and seeing some pics :)

    BEE safe :)

  2. I am so looking forward to seeing Boston through your eyes! Have a safe and fun trip!

    Beautiful progress, as always, on your stitching!!

  3. Love ur stitching! Enjoy ur weather too because we are having rain...around 50 degrees F.


  4. Jen - I love your piece!!! I'm looking forward to seeing more of it. And I'm jealous girlfriend - Boston - be still my heart! I hope that you and the Bodyguard have a wonderful time.

    P.S. your weather came up this way - I think it was 80!!

  5. I hope you have a wonderful time in
    Boston. Lunch/dinner suggestion:
    Ye Olde Oyster House (oldest restaurant in the US). Yes, that
    seafood will be marvelous!
    Have a fun trip!

  6. Great Progress !! Almost Finished. Pollen is everywhere here in Alabama also. right eye is nearly shut. Can't wait to hear about the Boston trip. I have never been there.

  7. Allergies kicked in here about two days ago!! I'll take the pollen over any more snow though!

    Boston is such a fun city! I can't wait to hear all about your adventures!

    I assume Ren will be at the doggie hotel - is Miss Abbie going there too, or does she get to tag along for the trip?
