On Tuesday morning when I woke up, my back was a mess. Sent Morris out for ibuprofen and I started taking them right away because I sure wanted to be able to go to Fenway Park for our tour and the game. Usually I have such things in my purse, but I had repacked things to have a smaller purse.
With me nursing my back, that left Morris to do some touring basically on his own. We both like to see other state capitol buildings since he works for the state and I am retired from the state. Here are some pictures he took of the Massachusetts State Capitol.

As I was planning what to put in this post, I had thoughts of more pictures, but when I started uploading them into blogger, I cut back on the number of pictures. It was going to make this way to long. I did not get too see much of Boston myself other than in the dark when we got there and from our hotel window when I was nursing my back. I was really disappointed that I did not get to take in more of the city. Hopefully there will be another time to do that. The morning after the game we boarded a motor coach for Cooperstown, New York and the Baseball Hall of Fame. Details of that part of the trip to come in another post. My plans were to get some stitching done on the bus, but that did not happen very much. Too much going on around me and as we got closer to Cooperstown, winding roads. My iPod came in handy for that part of the trip.
During the week before we left, I had another birthday lunch with one of my friends, also a stitcher. She gave this beautiful quilted wall hanging that she had made. I had seen a similar one that her mother had started before she passed away. Sandi had finished it and hand quilted it. I fell in love with it. So she made this for me and had someone machine quilt it. The machine quilting is so pretty. It is hard to see it in this picture. Should have taken a photo of the back to be able to see it better. I am so in love with this piece. I have the perfect place to hang it. Have to rearrange some things on wall and put in a couple more nails, but it will be on the wall soon.
Although I did not get much stitching done on our trip, I have been getting quite a bit of stitching done this past week. Sometime the week before we left, I started working on a new design for The Sunflower Seed. It is another rather large piece and is going to take a while to complete. Right now I am about 1/4 done with it. No photos until it is released. Speaking of released designs, one of the small designs that i worked on recently was released this week. I had planned to include a photo, but something happened to it and now I have to go download it again. Try to do a quick post showing it in a day or two.
Hope I did not bore you too much with all my Fenway Park and Boston stuff Next installment will be posted in a few days. Until then, keep on stitching!!!!!
