I'm Still Alive

I did not go off the deep end because the Patriots lost the Super Bowl. It was a great game. The Giants won on a double miracle play - the Pats should have sacked Manning and Tyree caught an impossible ball to catch.

I grew up a Minnesota Vikings fan. I've seen my team go to four Super Bowls and lose. So a loss wasn't too tough to take. Of course it would have been great to see the Pats win, but life goes on!

Pitchers and catchers report next week. Spring training is around the corner and, before you know it, Opening Day will be here.

We had a small scare on the new condo over the weekend. I called to get the electric and gas put in our name and learned the tenants had both of them scheduled to turn off yesterday - 10 days before closing. My broker was out of town and I didn't reach him until Monday morning. By the end of the day, the owner had the utilities in his name until closing day.

Sunday the new LQS nearby had a 50% off sale. DH told me I should go shopping even though I told him I really didn't need anything. He insisted, so I went. I found a cute apron pattern for the Sassy Apron swap, fabric for the apron, a three-quarter yard piece of blue TOT fabric and a package of 5 x 7 scraps that will work in my Butterfly Garden quilt.

I haven't spent a lot of time stitching the last few days. I'm still working on the Ann & Andy block for Butterfly Garden. I probably won't get much stitching time the next two weeks. Between all day sales meetings, packing, closing and then moving stitching will have to take a back seat. :(

Keep stitching and keep smiling!

Glad you didn't take the loss too hard . . . around these parts we know what it's like to have a team that never wins when it counts *s*

Yeah, I am well accustomed to the Vikings losing, too...very sad. :(

Anytime's a good time for a fabric sale, isn't it??
Hope you get some stitching in today!

I don't know the first thing about Superbowl other than the great discounts you can get in needlework stores around that time.
There's always room for a bit more fabric!
I'm glad you didn't give up on the applique.
Good luck with your move.
