I intended to get over here this morning before work but apparently there has been a schedule screw-up (not mine thank goodness!) and I have the day off so I've been out enjoying the morning and am now getting ready for some good stitching time in front of the TV for the rest of the day. And yes, we will be watching the Super Bowl later. How can we miss it- it's our local team, the Colts, against Drew Brees and the Saints. Brees was quarterback at Purdue when I attended school there a few years ago so I have quite a few fond memories of watching him play and would love to see him with a Super Bowl ring. Of course I'd love to see the Colts win again too so I'm a little torn about the whole thing but the Colts won recently so I think I'm breaking out the black and gold today:)

But the real reason I stopped by today was for pictures so here's what I've been up to-

Dragon Moon 2/7/10


First up is Dragon Moon. I haven't worked on it in a few days but I am up to 7.5 blocks for the Stitching Olympics. I don't think I've got a shot at beating my 125 blocks from last Olympics but I'd like to get some good progress in anyway.

Pumpkin pillow 2/7/10


This is part of the reason I'm not going to be breaking any goals this year. It's the beginning of the Pumpkin pillow out of the Donna Vermillion vegetable pillow series JCS ran a few years back. It just stitches up so smoothly it's hard to put down. So my compromise to myself is that I'll work on the dragon this afternoon and switch it out for the pumpkins tonight when the game starts.

What a treat to find out you don't have to work instead of that you do have to work! Enjoy your day stitching. Both of your projects look great!!

Love the colors in the pumpkin pillow so much. That and the acorn pillow are on my VERY LONG list to stitch one day.

Great progress on Dragon Moon, too.

One of these years I'm going to give into my delusions of grandeur and start those pillows.

Sorry about the Colts!
