Finished with January


Well, January from the Joyful World SAL that is. This was a really fun little project to stitch and I'm getting the supplies for the February design together. But before I start that one, I'd better go through my WIPs and see about making progress on some old projects.

I hope you had an enjoyable MLK weekend. Son Kevin and his wife came down from Cheney to visit. He helped Gary get all the Christmas decorations from our offices put back up into the attic space. It was so nice to come in to the office this afternoon to find all the boxes gone! He also was able to help with Kirsten's flat tire on her car. We ended up called roadside assistance to get the tire changed, then took it to Les Schwab for a new set of tires and alignment. Wish we'd realized before winter hit how worn her tires were and so thankful for God's protecting her when she was driving on snowy roads!

The football season is over for us Seattle Seahawks fans. I'm really glad I was in church and missed the first half of that game against the Panthers. But I can't get too upset over this season when I can remember so many years when the team was mediocre at best. At least the last few years we've had a team to be excited about!

As for the SuperBowl, if it's between the Panthers and Patriots, I'll be hate watching the game, lol!

I love your finish! This is such a sweet and colorful piece! Since I am in NC I am a Panther fan but it was a good game. The Seahawks came back strong in the second half!

Nice getting caught up with you Von. I plan on starting in on this SAL. Just have limited stitching time due to this neck problem.

Yep--our Pittsburgh Steelers' season is over, too :( Oh well, there's always next year, right?!

Love your January finish!!

Such a sweet finish and you were so fast!

Yes too bad for the Seahawks. Even with the "Twelve Man" up here, it's a no go. There were lots of sad fans moping around this city too.

What a cute little project that is going to be. Sunday was a bummer for all us Seahawk fans. All during Advent my DH went to Church with me and recorded the games, so when he wanted to stay home Sun. I agreed. See what happens when you skip Church for a football game!!!!

Always enjoy seeing your stitching and hearing the news. I can't comment on sports since I only go to games to watch grandchildren.

So lovely that you could finish this little piece so quickly. This SAL is addictive, isn't it?
