Lucy, I'm home!

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.

Cute title post - "Lucy, I'm home!" Heehee. Those ornaments sound beautiful. Sounds like you had a lovely time with your sister.

Welcome back! It's always nice to spend quiet time with family. Low-key is simply lovely.

One day I hope to return to my cross stitch projects. Occasionally I will pull one out late at night when the baby is asleep, but it's harder and harder for me to stay up that late! *sigh*

Sounds like a very nice holiday and a productive one also. Do you have a regular camera? If so take some photos then when you have them developed get them put on a disk. That way you can download them and get some photos up on the blog. I can't wait to see this quilt you are working on.

I bought some thread yesterday so I can begin edge stitching the sashing I did.
