I've been enjoying this one too much to put it down right now, so I started another house tonight - House 8. As I suspect it will be with all 12 of the blocks, this one is so very different to stitch than was the first one. Oddly, even the color key is different for this block. I got used to certain symbols being certain colors, and now all of that is changed. Kind of odd. Maybe I will keep with this one again tomorrow, but the Drawn Thread SAL is calling to me too... maybe a little of each tomorrow?
One of Mike's friends popped in today on a visit from Pennsylvania. He was telling me about his and his wife's adventures in adopting a baby out of Russia. It was a really interesting story. After several trials, though, they adopted an 18 month old boy in September. It sure is a different world over there than it is here. I was shocked to learn that his son was fed primarily milk and tea in the orphanage. Yikes!!!
Introducing one of the Red Sox' newest superstars. This weekend the Boston Red Sox acquired two new superstars, as well as a third player, from the Florida Marlins. Josh Beckett, starting pitcher and World Series 2003 MVP is now with the Boston Red Sox :-) He is a known "Yankee Killer" already, so welcome to Boston, Josh! Along with him comes Mike Lowell, third baseman. I hear wonderful things, but sadly this means we will likely bid farewell to Bill Mueller, one of my favorite Red Sox :-( Ah, sports can be so heart wrenching! No news yet on Johnny Damon or Manny Ramirez.... holding my breath, would love to see them both come back! (photo from www.redsox.com)
