Hi, everyone! This Sunday sees me a bit under the weather with whatever crud is going around--fever, chills, aches, coughing, etc. Fortunately, although I don't feel well enough to do much, I can still stitch, wrapped in my fluffy pink robe, cats gathered round and a box of Kleenex at my side. I keep nodding off though. I picked up my framed pieces on Wednesday night: Behold Sarah Hatton McPhail. There is museum glass in both frames, which I highly recommend.
And a close-up of her frame. There's a little bit of glare from the bulbs in the dining room chandelier--these are lying on the table at the moment, since I don't want to be wobbly when I hang them.
And the Dickens Mittens (Dickens Christmas? I can never remember the name of the thing) by Cross Eyed Cricket:
And a close-up of that as well. The framing was done at In Stitches, and I'm so pleased with the result!

I made chicken noodle soup from scratch yesterday.
Last week, my sister took me out for a wonderful lunch at Rosa Mexicano at Washington Harbor. There are Rosas scattered around the U.S.--Minneapolis, San Francisco, Boston, DC. We highly recommend it. Freshly made tortillas and tableside guacamole, seen here, along with some pomegranate margaritas. Yummy.
I picked up this little project at In Stitches on Stitch Night.
And promptly started it.

I haven't neglected Catharine McNeal either.
Elizabeth says hello.

And goodbye.

Happy week ahead! (Note, if you're looking for my blog list, it seems to have migrated below the action. It's a mystery to me why, and I'll fix it when I can figure out how to do so!)

I was under the weather for a week - woke today for the first time since then without a headache. I hope you'll be well soon. I love the visual of you in a fluffy pink robe, surrounded by adoring felines, as you stitch. :)
