Virginia Gentlemen

I just spent five glorious days with my good friends, Michael and David. They live in a beautiful home overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. What a time I had! What hospitality! A private suite, full breakfast, afternoon cocktails on the porch, gourmet dinner served at 7:30. These are true Virginia Gentlemen.

While strolling through the rooms of this delightful home I came upon walls filled with intricate pieces of needlepoint. These were stitched with perfection and framed tastefully. Both Michael and David bring love and talent to the pieces they create.

Nina stayed home with her daddy and had a marvelous time. Although she didn't get to see her favorite pen pals, she did receive a brand new friend, Click the Otter.

Michael Boren? You got to spend time with Michael?!!!!

Small world! I'd heard about his wall of stitching, so it was fun to see the photo. I don't know David but Michael is a friend. Lovely man who designs wonderful things.

He is a threadaholic. Hope you got to play with all that thread!

I'm jealous. And only 90 minutes downstream from Michael so next time....

Jane, waving excitedly from Chilly Hollow and wondering if that is my silk gauze version of Sherherazade I gave Michael - nope, it's too big
