sad weekend

My beloved Cubs didn't make the cut. Again. A gloomy pall hangs over the city. Most of us die hard fans thought this would be the year because they have been playing so well. They were only out of first place for a couple of days the entire season. But a different team showed up for the playoffs. Next year for sure. :-)

I've continued my work on Quaker Casket but I didn't get as much done as I was hoping. The plan was to be working on the largest section by now but I just didn't feel like stitching much. If you are familiar with the design of this piece, you can see I changed the above front panel. It was designed to be a memorial sort of piece with family initials/dates and such. But I don't have much family of my own (well actually none except for my three pugs :-)) so I changed it to be the alphabet. I like how it turned out very much. I only have one more motif and a couple more letters and I'm ready to start the top piece. And just in the nick of time! I received an email yesterday saying my casket was almost ready to ship. I can't wait to see it.

This latest Quaker piece is lovely. You choose the greatest projects to work on!!

At my house, half are happy about the Red Sox, but the other half are quite sad about the Cubs. Yes, there's always next year, isn't there . . . ?
