Quiet on the Home Front

After the burst of sewing energy expended in the creation of Ilse's christening gown, I took a little time off and didn't accomplish much at all last week. The ipod has a solitaire game that saw far too many games played. I did work on a couple of small cross-stitch freebies.

The muscles in my neck and shoulders are all bunched up and finally produced an awful headache yesterday morning. Melanie tried working on my neck a bit, but told me the muscles were just too knotted, so I called my massage therapist friend for a quick appointment. Thankfully she was able to get me in and started working out the knots. I left feeling much better, even breathing better, but I'll be back in a few days for more work.

Our friend Andrea is becoming a specialist in baby photography with the current baby boomlet at church. Here's a nice one of Ilse in her gown.

Thank you for all your encouraging comments on Ilse's christening gown. It's so nice to have online friends to share my life with.

Aww, what a sweet little thing! Love that halo effect (or whatever effect it is) from the photo! And in case I didn't already comment - which I honestly can't remember if I did! - what a beautiful gown. That's a wonderful memento for Ilse.

May I say that Ilse is an astonishingly beautiful baby I think she has a great sense of humour too. You can see it in her eyes! What a gorgeous picture of her in her gown.

I hope you will start to feel better soon, Von! Hey, and playing all those games on your iPod can't be good for the old muscles. I, er... know from experience.
