Do you remember where you were? Many of us of our generation know exactly where we were.

I had just come back from the ANG seminar which was held in Washington D.C. that year. Yes you read that correctly. I left on 9.10 and got home very late that night. Tuesday morning was a very early morning for us to be at work as that was my restaurant days and we would do inventory every Tuesday morning.

I wanted a quiet morning, no,TVs, no radio and drove to work, so I could soak in all my memories from seminar. So I didn’t have a clue what happened until I got to work and walked into the office. Being from NY and just leaving Washington D.C. kind of hit me hard.

Many of our seminar goers were going to vacation a bit in Washington D.C., but that didn’t happen. Many were stranded there, but at least they were safe.

As through the pandemic we’ve been stitching a lot, I knew that I stitched a lot then too. I’ve been watching and listening to all the tributes and remembrances today. And tonight is the Mets Yankees game.

never forget…

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?
