commercial hang over

We are bleary-eyed and butt-dragging around here today having watched the entire Blackout Bowl. It was my first time actually watching (and trying to comprehend)  the whole game. I kept losing track of who had the ball which Jimmy says is the whole point of the action. I will be sticking with baseball.

Normally I only look up from reading or stitching when the commercials come on but my eyes have been tired so I rested them at 12 feet instead of 12 inches. What I really need is a distant horizon, preferably one over a beach somewhere.

After getting my annual dose of disappointment from the tax Preparer's office this morning, I spent some time at the machine stitching on this one.





Voodoo overturned a large box of prints in the studio and uncovered a set of pictures of magnolia blooms that I took years ago.





And look at this beauty...rescued from sure annihilation at the hands of scrap metal thieves by Grace of the West

Hah! I gave up trying to figure out football over 25 years ago, when I married a man who prefers to watch movies to sports... works for me! But I do have very fond memories of listening to base all with my Dad back when the Dodgers moved to L.A. That became my sport of choice for many years...

This chair's wing may well become a part of the next thing I work on...and Beyonce?
Well, well. Just goes to show you can never know all that much by what is written on a blog...

Voodoodefinately has a good eye for art! I am loving that Grace likes Beyonce! I would have never known. LOL! The chair!!! Oh my gosh! It has beautiful lines and I love the wing. I grew up as the only girl in the neighborhood. I had to play sports and never out grew my love of watching well played games. Living in Seattle and watching the Seahawks and Mariners teaches one humility. LOL!
