This is My Town......(329)

Early doctor appointment for hubby (doc says he's very pleased), followed by wound care and a little physical therapy, Costco, Publix, a hike and I am finally sitting down at the computer. Whew!!! But I have what I need for Thanksgiving and can least today!

For my Stroll piece, a little nostalgia.....a piece I did in 1982...back in the day when I stitched on Aida and used masking tape on my edges!!! It's been folded up in a baggie since then, never framed or finished...sad, sad, sad! But I stumbled across it a couple weeks ago and am determined to do something with it. I bought the chart at a local needlework shop, Needlecraft Corner in Baltimore, which was my first cross stitch shop. I don't know who designed it but assume it was someone from the area. It is silhouettes of some of my hometown's landmarks. Anyone from Baltimore.... see if you can figure them out; I knew them all at the time but am not sure of some now.

My hubby always used to say "Batimore born and Baltimore bred, and when I die I'll be Batimore dead". The first two hold true, however we've been away from Balto. since 1983, but it still holds a special place in our hearts.

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!

PS  I have a new secret indulgence.....Stauffer's animal crackers dipped in Nutella  ...don't tell!!!



  1. I like your Baltimore piece, Stasi. Happy to hear hubby's doctor is pleased with his progress and glad you were able to get your fixings for Thanksgiving!

  2. So nice to hear that your husband is doing well. Baltimore is cool.

  3. Great stitch of Baltimore! Happy to hear your husband is doing well. RJ

  4. The first one's definitely the Bromo Seltzer Building. The canon is Fort McHenry. Not sure about all the domed buildings. One is definitely the Baltimore Basilica; I think the green one. One may be Hopkins. The tall blue one is the Washington Monument at Mt. Vernon Place, and I'd say the last one is the Shot Tower.
