The men in my life

November 13, 2007

I don't have any stitching pictures to show, although I will tomorrow so I thought I would share a photo of my family. We were visiting Dan's Dad on Sunday and I got a picture of the 4 generations.... Dan, his father, his son and grandson. The weekend was pretty much of a non-stitching time. I went to Toronto to see Sweeny Todd at the Princess of Wales Theatre (beautiful place). It was a powerful performance but not one you would want to see again anytime soon. Pretty dark show anyway but this interpretation portrayed everyone in it as crazy and had it set in an asylum. Of course practically everyone dies. (violently)

Then Sunday, as mentioned we were off again to Mississauga for the visit. Dan's father did not know Dan had arranged for David and Michael to come by so it was a nice surprise for him to have his grandson and great grandson for a couple of hours.

This morning I am off to Joyce's where I will work on backstitching "It's good to be Queen" (are you happy Kathy??)

I did finish my teapot last night so this afternoon or tomorrow I will take photos of it, my progress on Queen and Pretty Pumpkins for my next post.

Have a great day everyone.

I love generation photos :) It's always interesting to see them.
And they all have the same nose :)

The photo of "the boys" is very nice. I think it is so nice to have those and be able to pass them along as years march onward. Your CdC progress is wonderful! It is so pretty.

What a great picture and to have that many generations together is a real challenge in this "busy" day and age.

Can't wait to see your completed tea pot!

How nice that you had the opportunity to get a generation photo of Dan's family. It's great that they were all able to get together for a visit like that. My Mom is still waiting to meet her greatgrandchildren. They just live too far away from her.

What a great picture! There is such a strong family resemblance between all the 'boys'!
