It's a Football Post

It's been a wee bit busy around EverBank Field this week.  On Wednesday, we signed our 3rd Round Draft Pick, Bryan Anger (his shirt says Punters are People Too - I love it) and Thursday was spent checking in 90 guys for Training Camp.  

Our new locker rooms are done (they're fabulous) and we were able to take a tour on Friday.  Instead of showing you my terrible pictures, I'll just let you look at the slide show from the website.  All I can say is "Wow".  

The excitement around the stadium and training camp is very, very high.  With new ownership and a new coaching staff, I really hope this will be a great year for us.  

Ok, gotta go mow my grass, it's been a little neglected lately.

Talk soon,

The Octathorp Quilt

My friend, Rita, told me these little symbols are actually Octathorps.  (Recently learned while playing a trivia game).  I love it!

It still needs the binding, but I finished the borders and backing when I was in Georgia and then Joanie quilted it.
I love the quilting - can you see it?

The binding will be hot pink!

More later,

Happy 4th of July! . . . And A New Chair

Happy 4th of July!  We rarely do anything on this day.  #1 it's too dang hot (high 90's today) and #2 it gets pretty crazy with all the people shooting off fireworks in our neighborhood.  We usually end up watching the Boston Pops.

Bought myself a little present yesterday -

So excited about this chair.  It's a Koala and it replaces the little cheap one I bought at Office Depot a few years back.  My sewing table, aka a folding table, sits a little higher with my sewing machine on top of that.  This chair is more like a drafting chair and lets me get up above my table but still reach the sewing machine peddle.

Have a very happy and safe 4th of July!

Talk soon,
