...and I didn't even watch it :-( In fact, I did not even begin to think he was driving one of his rare Busch Series races, so I didn't look up the entry list this week. I went to the site to see if there was any interesting news there, and yes, there sure was! This is Ryan's first win of this season - even if it is a Busch Series race - but with his reports of being thrilled that Penske signed Kurt Busch for 2007 and this win tonight, maybe he will now be catapulted in the right direction! We will see tomorrow - he starts 7th in the road course race (Nextel Cup Series) at Watkins Glen, NY tomorrow - woo hoo!! (Photo is from www.nascar.com) And, if you click here, Ryan will come onto your screen and tell you all about Sony HDTV's :-)
...And in stitching news.... it is Saturday, and I am back to using Saturdays to work on the Mermaid Heaven SAL.... I am getting close now to finishing the first page.... and the mother mermaid is really starting to fill in a bit. I love, love, love this project :-)
It was a good stash day today as well... first of all, I received a pair of hand dyed fabrics, really yummy ones, from an ebay seller - both are fat quarters of belfast linen - one by Dyeing4U, and one by The Blended Needle: , and I also received the Liz Turner Diehl chart I bought for myself for my birthday: And I just know that when I finish stitching it (someday), I will just have to send it off to Becky for finishing!! There is no way I could get it to look as good as in the photo if I tried to finish it on my own :-) And, I received the oh so cute Basket Case chart too!!
I did do a tiny bit of shopping today... I have been planning to start getting Taj Mahal kitted up.... I never did get my kit ordered for it... and now they are out... but they did have the bead pack available, so I got that! I will get the supplies on my own... gotta stitch this one for my new living room when the basement is finished (Mike's friend cancelled this weekend...arghhhh.... zero progress made on the basement, so we are behind schedule now!).
My brother and his girls stopped up to visit today. They brought me my belated birthday gift (they vacation on Cape Cod every summer.... and it falls on my birthday week) - they got me a stunning three ball Cape Cod bracelet to go with my single ball bracelet they bought me last year! The bracelet at the top in the photo is the one I got last year - this year I got the one on the bottom - it is symbolic of my three nieces :-)
Red Sox 7, White Sox 4!!
