I'm Back!

 I sure did miss blogging.  I must confess that I didn't go skiiing.  I went to Boston, but did not have a going to Boston needlepoint ornament.  I do now.  I bought this little cutie at Stitch Boutique.  It is the cutest little store in the Back Bay area of Boston.  This depicts the Boston Public Gardens.  The golden domed building in the back is the Massachusetts State House.  There are Swan boats available to ride on the water.  The gold duck and her babies are brass ducks erected in the park.  We couldn't see them because they were under all the snow.  They are from the book Make Way for Ducklings.  I remember my grandmother reading that book to us.  So this canvas evoked all kinds of warm fuzzy feelings in me.

I stitched a little of the water while I was there with some overdyed silk.  Back to the real world!


  1. Glad you are back! It really messes with morning mojo when I can't read you blog.

  2. Missed you too! welcome back...

  3. Steph, this is adorable. I'm going to have to order one of these. Boston Public Gardens is a favorite place because of Mamma Duck and her little trail of ducklings. I did a post on it a few years ago. You can see Mrs. Mallard and her little ones on my link here: No snow. '-)
    Glad you had a good time............Sarah

  4. I'm glad you're back - I've been away too, but always found time to click in to have a look at what you've been doing.

  5. Precious! Now that you are back the morning routine is normal! I love Boston and bet you would love a reason to visit on a regular basis!

  6. Hi Steph,
    Welcome Home. Hope the college looking was successful. Adorable rememberance of your trip.

  7. So nice to be missed. It was a successful and fun visit. I don't know what stitches will look good. I will jump in as soon as I get over the cold I brought home with me! Thanks for all your support.

  8. woo hoo! Now I can get back to my usual morning check in.
    Also, I LOVED my trip to Boston a few years ago. I want to go back. Did you get a chance to go to Mike's Pastry? :) So good!
