More progress on the lily petal skirt of Petal Fairy tonight. I didn't get as much done as I thought I would due to witnessing the tragedy in the Red Sox game tonight (see end of entry for the details) which totally distracted me and turned my stomach... Now she gets put aside for at least a day because tomorrow is Legends of the Dragons SAL day, and I plan to keep up with that one.... just as well, I am sure you are all getting bored with seeing this same fairy every day anyhow.
I didn't expect to be buying a Silkweaver Solo today, but came across this one while surfing. Karen has been asking about doing a Fairy Idyll SAL, and I was thinking this one might the right size and a good green color to use for it.... :-)
The mailman brought me my Holly Noel chart/embellishments today... as well as a pretty chart I got on ebay to surprise yet another one of my friends :-)

Red Sox 10, Devil Rays 9 - it was a hard fought 10 inning game.... which appeared at first would be a rout, until bottom of the third inning when... oh, when our pitcher, Matt Clement, got smacked in the right side of his head (near his ear or was his temple, no word where quite yet) and was knocked down, didn't move.... Very scary!! He was taken off of the field in total silence on a back board on a stretcher and rushed to the hospital in Florida. The first update came in about an hour later as a statement from the Red Sox saying he 'never lost consciousness, was alert, aware of his surroundings and knew what had happened to him.' Another hour or so later, another update came in that his CAT scan was negative and he was in bright spirits... this, however, still is a bad thing. On top of that, Trot Nixon pulled/twisted or somehow damaged his left oblique muscle even earlier in the game while he was batting.... ouch, he will be out for a bit! Darn! But thanks to Johnny Damon and Jason Varitek, we did pull out the win! Thanks to the whole team, really. I hope they did it for Matt :-)
New DVD Release Tuesday - Mike picked up XXX: State of the Union, but it is going to be weird without Vin Diesel in this one....
