Our last day and home sweet home!

Before we left Boston, and after the conference ended BG and I headed over to the Summer Shack. It was a cool place that we had popped into one evening for a cup of chowder and yum it was!
We planned our last meal to go back and eat lobster. This was the first time (OK, don't laugh) that BG and I ever ate lobster. It's just always been too pricey but we splurged and the waiter was neat by helping us figure out how to crack it open and use the bucket. It was eaten in a very short time, dipped in hot butter with corn, corn bread and rolls.
Great lunch!

I had been taking cold medicine all day and it seemed to get worse as the day went on.

 I wanted to show you this in case you ever go through Logan International Airport.
I caught the glimpse of this right after we got through security.
A quilt with blocks of cross stitch, specialty stitching squares and regular quilting squares all for the 9-11 memorial. What a beauty! If my head wasn't throbbing so much, I should have taken more attention to the history written on the left but we were in a hurry.

Wouldn't that be awesome to have a piece of your stitching at the airport?

This square, my favorite.

By the time, I got to Atlanta airport I was sicker than sick and had to get some more medicine at the airport even just to go to baggage claim. My head felt like it was going to explode and then nausea and fever set in so I'm finally home and praying this bug goes away tomorrow with rest.

Abbie and Ren will be home first thing in the morning. I hope they had a good time at the pet sitter and don't pout too much when they get here!  LOL
They will each get a junior cheeseburger if they are good little furbabies on the way home.

I got a great start on LHN, Always and Forever and will post tomorrow. Unfortunately, this was the first time I got lipstick on my fabric AFTER I had already put many stitches in, so a button will have to be improvised at that stain. Evidently a lip pencil top came off in my purse which was huge and for such a small bit it smeared on everything, my phone, my wallet, everything.
I reached to get my phone and check the time while I was stitching and there it popped on my fabric. I almost had a coronary right there but the button idea sounds good. A heart button.
I definitely will not be frogging all that out. And the more I tried to rub it off the bigger it got, so as they say make lemons out of lemonade. I'm stitching with overdyed silk so it's not an option to wash it.
I have a laundry list of many more to stitch so I best get this finished.
Tomorrow I also want to frame This Too Shall Pass and make the pillow of a Sweet View.

We enjoyed the week. It went by in a flash to me and Monday morning will come oh so soon enough.
Tomorrow is unpack, clean up a bit and probably rest alot so that I can work on Monday and get over this viral/flu like feeling.
Every bone in my body aches right now so I'm turning in........


  1. Wishes for a speedy recovery!! What a way to end your trip! Lobster good - nasty bug, not so good!

  2. Glad to hear you made it home safe and sound. I'm sure the pups will be as thrilled to see you as you are to see them. Rest up! I hope the "yuckies" go away soon!

  3. Jennifer,
    I'm so glad you both had such a good week and had fun in Boston!
    Don't you just love that lobster?!!
    I am also glad that if you had to get sick, it was at the end of your trip and not the beginning.
    I can't wait to see the buttons photos and more of your trip! You accomplished quite a bit of stitching.
    Hope you are feeling much better,

  4. Mmmmmm..... lunch looks great and BG is pretty cute, too! Love the quilt and I hope you're now home safe and feeling better soon!

  5. I just love, love lobster so you can imagine that I was drooling all over when I saw what you're eating. Too bad that's it's so expensive. Hope that you're feeling better soon and can rest up when you get home.

  6. Glad you made it home safe and sound. Sorry to hear you were so sick. Hope you are feeling better soon. I love lobster and Boston. I have not been to the big city in a long time, hope to make it back there some time soon. I will be checking out the restaurants you dined at. Everything looked very yummy!

  7. MMMmmm...that lobster dinner looks good! I hope you feel better soon. And sorry to hear about the whole lipstick snafu. Ugh...I'd have had a coronary too!
