Jake's Christening

Today was my godson Jake's christening. He was an angel in church; in fact, the little boy next to us was crying, & Jake kept giving him dirty looks. He looked so handsome in his christening outfit. Afterwards, the parents, grandparents, godparents & other relatives went to a neighborhood Italian restaurant for a good meal to celebrate. As you can see, Jake preferred the cake to all else.
Wait a minute. Is this a needlepoint blog? Oh, yeah, it is. Ok. Well, we need to ask Linda to take a photo of the completed framed piece I gave to Jake today for his room. I forgot to take a picture of it. Sorry. And I am (still) working on Ponza 3, and am on the rocks, and so moving very, very slowly. I was delusionally thinking I might finish Ponza 3 before we go to Amy's, but it doesn't look good. We're home pretty early from Jake's christening, so I might just get some of Ponza done tonight. I have a few other items I am working on as well, but I can't discuss them as they are gifts for family members who just might peek at this blog. I haven't had much time to stitch, what with working a whole lot, and having summer planting to tend to, and......I just don't know where the time goes!
Enjoy these photos of Jake. I know I loved spending time with him today. I may just steal him away for some time with his Godmother......

I have stumbled to your blog and I have been surprised of all your stitching work about Ponza.

I'm very curious because I'm originally from Ponza...are you as well from Ponza?

Hi Luigi,

My grandparents were from Ponza. I have a house there.
