A little Stitchin' and Some Other Stuff.....

Gentle Friends, so I'm still stitching away on CTA, and here's a not so hot progress shot...

...this has turned out to be a really fun piece to work on... 
my headless maidens are pretty silly at this point...

Yesterday was my Birthday and so I took off Friday and today for a little staycation... but life goes on and things have to get done, like the laundry ... I did a bunch yesterday and as usual two of the Who Hounds jumped into the hot sheets the minute they could...


I really didn't want to do anything for my B-day but Rico insisted and so I did agree to a nice meal at Lovjoy's with some friends... as with most of the restaurants here in SF they have constructed "Parklets" in front of the restaurants in the parking spaces for social distancing... so it was a fun "dejeunez sous l'arbe...

 ... we ordered four Queens teas and had pots of tea and a ton of food, this was after we had attacked the three tiers of sandwiches, scones, crumpets, and petit fours... so the four of us had a wonderful time!  It was so relaxing the day was breezy, sunny and warm... a perfect afternoon ... no fuss and no muss!

There you go sports fans, now for the rest of the day, I'm going to be stitching on CTA and watching some fun movies on TCM.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

Goof Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!


  1. Happy belated! Looks like it was a perfect birthday. I'm not much for tea (unless it's sweet tea) but I would be a piggy with that tray.

    CTA looks good!

  2. Happy Belated, love the Coming to America progress. Everything else finishes about to start names. Changing the stitches between names to red ( stolen ides from facebook).

  3. Happy Belated Birthday! Looks like you had fun. I haven't had the time to blog browse for a while. I love the newest piece that you are stitching. It is gorgeous!

  4. A very happy "late" birthday to you Edgar!! It looks like such a nice way to spend the special day!

  5. Happy Belated Birthday!! Ahhh....that lunch under the tree looks AHHHHMAZING!!! I don't know how far I'd have to travel to find a menu with those kinds of offerings (probably SF LOL)..... Looks lovely. We are far too cold already to be dining al fresco.... :-( Stay safe and well....and stitch on.... ~Robin~

  6. Happy belated birthday from Germany.
    This tray looks delicious!!

  7. Happy birthday. I love a good afternoon tea, it is my idea of decadence. x

  8. Happy belated birthday! I am glad that Rico took you out for a treat. Best wishes for a fabulous year!

  9. What a delightful birthday outing. I have had "high tea" once when I was in England (the only time) at the Savoy. It was quite a delight.

    I am glad you had a great birthday treat.

  10. It looks like you had a wonderful day out for your birthday, Edgar. Happy Birthday! Your Mayflower piece is looking awesome.

    1. Edgar,looks like you had a delightful birthday! Love seeing the Who Hounds again!

    The hounds looks so cute.
