How 'bout them Cowboys?!? (& some Progress Pics)
Woohoo!! I am one happy Cowboys fan today! In a game full of penalties, The Boys defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 34-14 last night (for the 3rd time this season) to win the NFC East wild card playoff game!! It's been 13 long, dry years since we've had a playoff win. This Dallas team is a special group of men and are playing excellent ball. If they can keep it together, stay healthy, stay mentally focused, and stay a cohesive unit, then I can see them going all the way to the Super Bowl.
On one of the message boards to which I belong, every Saturday we have Saturday Stitch Night (SNS). We post our before and after pics, so everyone who participates can see our progress. Last night while watching the Cowboys whoop the snot out of the Eagles, I stitched on the LHN Seasonal Saltbox design, "Blessed are the Pure in Heart". It's kinda hard to watch the game, cheer for your team and stitch at the same time, but I managed a great amount of progress.
Here's where I started:
And here's where I stopped after 3 hours and 5 mins of stitching (& cheering) time:
This past Friday, I got about an hour in on my Jan. 1st piece, "Have a Heart" by Val's Stitching. Of course, I started by frogging, but I didn't have as much to frog as I had anticipated. I've decided this is going to be my project for this coming week.
Today, I'll be stitching on my incentive piece, "Give" by Plum Street Samplers, so be looking for an update in the coming days. Until then, stay warm!
