Hey ya'll, I'm home.
I was a little ever so paranoid by my posting about Bush that while waiting for my flight at IAH, I kept looking around to see if I saw anybody looking even slightly like FBI people watching me.... Then I did it again when I got to DC. I didn't see anyone reading newspapers with their sunglasses on, so I guess I was ok. :)
I had a lovely time. I used to sight see whenever I visited my sister. Then, last February, I went to visit her and she took me to some little town where we found a chocolate shop. We sat down with hot chocolate and she looked me square in the face and asked me what I wanted to do. I told her, "I know this sounds crazy, but I want to stay at home and do home-body stuff". She was soooo excited. We found a needlework project and spent the remainder of my stay doing just that. Her husband was sent for food on occasion.
So, this time I knitted a scarf, made a necklace and started a scrapbook. We did manage to get out one day and visit an antique store. I kept thinking about Nora's lovely victorian ornaments and my sister has a really pretty tree, too and I wanted to buy some cute and feminine ornaments for my tree. I succeeded in finding a cute purse ornament and a somewhat matching shoe. I found a teapot ornamant and some pretty white bells with pink flowers.
So, now I am even more motivated to finish my quilt. I need to do some edge stitching on the sashes, then I'll get my batting and back fabric. I should have it all done by February. (Fingers crossed).
Sorry, still no digital camera....so no photos of anything. I'm working on it Guys, really, I am.
