I thought that those of you who are interested in sampler-y houses might like to see this antique, true Cape Cod home. It was built in 1900 and it's for sale for $489,000 and is located in East Falmouth, on the Cape. You can see more pictures of it here (click on the 2nd page--the link doesn't take you there automatically). Its barn is even cuter than the main house.
We had a little fourth of July party today. It was extremely hot, so I had a nice opportunity to play with ice. This is from my new ice cube tray: the Titanic, complete with icebergs. Hilarious.
Audrey was our honored guest. She says those are not her beers. *hic*
We had these.
Here's my sister, demonstrating Watermelon Carving 101.
This is Gilbert, demonstrating Pyrotechnics 101 while Audrey watches.
Audrey: "ooooooh! aaaaaaaah!"
Yesterday I was sitting in the stitching chair when the phone rang. It was one of the nice women from In Stitches to tell me that Miriam Chilvers had arrived. I rushed off to pick up Miriam and then kitted her up. I'm stitching her on 40 count Lakeside (I'm forgetting what color) using AVAS. My favorite combination.
I felt the urge to stitch on Peaceful Garden (Stitching Parlor), so I took it out.
And I made some progress on Sous le Soleil:
Peaches, grooming Pink.
Tomorrow's agenda: stitch all day.
Happy Fourth of July, all!
