Where did the day go? I spent all day working on finishing part one of Medieval Town Mandala... looks really boxy, doesn't it? I think the sixteen squares around the fountain look like mosaic tiles, but Martina has them labeled as flower beds on the chart... ok. They took me forever to stitch, that much I do know! Anyhow, will be happy to put this away until next month now :-)
I am trying to do my part now to support the Anaheim Angels (or whatever it is they are calling themselves this year - LOL!). I brought my rally monkey from the 2002 post season down from where I keep him in my stash room, and I hung him on a jar candle atop one of our DVD racks in the living room. He didn't bring the Angels any luck against the Yankees tonight.... hope he can do it tomorrow night!! He has one last chance left!
Let's Go Patriots! Not bad, considering at least 50% of our starters are on the DL, we won today: Patriots 31, Falcons 28 - it doesn't look like their spirits are at all deflated by all of these injuries. What is with the ridiculous schedule the NFL gave to NE to start the season? Talk about making them have to climb uphill LOL! I looked at all AFC and NFC schedules, and nobody's looks as horrible as NE's does! That's how champs are treated, I guess. MLB did the same to the Red Sox at the start of last season. Definitely the downside to being champs!
Bad day/OK day for Ryan Newman... he got caught up in someone else's crash on lap 17, came in 23rd... yet is still second in points. Yet all the NASCAR talk shows on SPEED Channel make it sound like his season is over - yet he is second in points? No respect for Newman - there never is! Better luck next week Ryan! I'll surely be here rooting for you! (Maybe the rally monkey will help him??)
Stitched on today: Medieval Town Mandala... and I got some stash on ebay tonight, but it is very, very late here now and I will post that info in tomorrow's entry :-)
