Boston bound .... and thoughts of Autumn stitches!

 Delicious Autumn, my very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive Autumns!

George Eliot.

Well we have said a sad farewell to Stonington and our dear friends, we had such fun and laughs with them.  Next year they say they are coming to visit us in England so that will be amazing but now we are Boston Bound for are last 4 days of this wonderful holiday.

Whilst in Boston we will be going to The Boston Tea Party .. not the original you understand but the remake, and of course us being British it should mix it up a bit!

Boston is a beautiful city and has the original lamp posts that have been converted from gas to electric with energy saver bulbs because it is the tradition that the streets are always lit up day and night in this stunningly beautiful city that I love.

The parks and walks here are beautiful and there, of course, is the harbour where there are large ships to take people whale watching and lots of old ships there too.  We are going to go Whale watching whilst there and I promise to take lots of pictures and hope in my excitement not to drop my camera!!!

I have been reliably informed there is a button shop in Boston so I will be going to check this out.  I would like to have a look although I doubt that they are vintage but you never know.

I have been doing a bit of stitching along this trip as we have had some lovely down time just relaxing so I feel very refreshed but still would love to be staying here for a month!
I think this is something my husband and I may look into in the future and that would be amazing.

My sketch journal is brimming with new ideas for Autumn designs and I have been playing with colours and stitches on a scrap of linen I brought with me to do just that if the mood took me.  We have been having time to just sit and take in the scenery as well and I am feeling so refreshed but also buzzing with ideas!

Well I hope that you all have a wonderful day yourself and of course ... Happy Stitching!


  1. What a splendid time you have been having, just sad not to be able to come to Frome to meet you in person! Boston does look exciting - bet there's a vintage store or two to explore!

    1. Having a great time Maureen .. Would be lovely to meet you in Frome! But one day. X
