Can you tell I am a FAN!!! Oh, right now, my blood runs black and gold.

My only sadness is that I can not share this football triumph with my Dad. He always called me when he knew the Steelers were being televised nationally. I can still hear him say, Joanie...Are you going to watch the game? I'll call you after it's over...yeah Dad, I heard you asking today too. I hope you had the best seat in Heaven watching your beloved Black and Gold roll the Broncos.


Oh, on the stitching front, I am working to fix a section of a long overdue piece for Nancy...I made a HUGH boo-boo and it required re-stitching and re-assembly.

And as a diversion, I worked on Sarah Tatum for a little bit when the *delinquent* piece developed a bad case of the frogs and I got a tad frustrated with it. Sarah looks good, I got 3 of the upper left motifs finally finished and the letter *A* too.

The fetching Miss Mary didn't see a needle this weekend as she is the *fun* piece and I would love to stitch on her no matter what. But I MUST, MUST, MUST correct my hugh blunder and get Nancy's piece finished before we both turn 100! I had to bury Miss Mary under a ton of Wips as she whines incessantly.

How did YOU fare this weekend with your passion for needle and thread?

I'm happy that your Steelers are in - I had a feeling that they would win! Should be an interesting Super Bowl game, don't you think?

My Miss Mary Mack got buried last week too, but I'm going to try to pull it out and get some more done on it this week!

I managed to get some stitching done and finished this weekend, it was an enjoyably lazy one - thanks for asking.

I meant to say on my other comment about MMM, its nice to dream and plan your next project, do you dream in DMC? I tend to always think of numbers and colours LOL!!

Hi Joanie:

Unfortunately, I saw very little needle action this weekend - just a small bit on a bus ride up to Disneyland - I was a chaperone for a middle school choir trip to sing and enjoy the park. I'm hoping to get a bit stitched tonight, after bedtimes and a quick trip to the gym.

Wow, your MMM whines and mine screams. She isn't a quiet girl, is she, the demanding little wretch! ;o)
