Superbowl

Well, as everyone knows by now, unless you live in a cave somewhere,  the Packers won the NFC championship and are headed to Dallas and the Superbowl. We barely survived the game, and am not sure what will happen in a couple of weeks. I believe the last time the Steelers went to the Superbowl it was against Seattle, and we all know how that turned out. Hopefully the refs have gotten better since then. Yeah, you know what I’m talkin’ about.

I have my annual Superbowl Sunday Mystery Quilt in Decorah that day. We have been doing that for 5 years now? Could it be? I live for my SB Sunday Mystery Quilt day. It calms the nerves, especially for a game like this.

Otherwise, it has been a slow week. I am working hard on my Skacel KAL and am actually on track with it. Am on part 4 this week, which is the week of part 4. Amazing.

I turned the heel with short rows.

See-there’s a heel. So I actually made a whole sock on Magic Loop. Well, I have almost made a whole sock on Magic loop. I need to figure out the cast on though.

I finished this up last week. It is a Thimbleberries from a couple of years ago. I was so frustrated by this kit that I opened the other kits and just put the fabric in the stash. I refuse to do any more. The problem is there is not the right amount of fabric in the kits. And you have to cut exactly right or you will run out. Even if you don’t cut exactly right you will run out. Fuhget about it!

Sorry about the wrinkles. It has been folded up for a week while I am figuring out the back.

Next I am going to put the trees on this one and finish it up. It is supposed to have a bunch of pin wheels, and I  say “fuhget about it “ to those things too. I think the trees will complete it nicely.

See-that pinwheel in the lower L corner? Yeah, not making any more of those. I do like the mountains though. I put that little deer on there-it was from something else. Maybe I’ll hide him in the trees.

I found this on the floor today

It’s garbage. Funny thing is I have no idea where it came from. I think it came out of a bag that is tacked to the table, but the bag was still up on the table, so that means that Jack one of the cats went to the trouble of reaching up into said bag and picked out and removed the garbage of their choice. Weird.

I decided that since I didn’t have many pictures I’d get down and do a Beta cam. Beta did not think it was a great idea, and was a bit puzzled by the whole thing-like what was I doing laying on the floor pointing the camera at him.

That’s the best he could do. Because then he did this.

Enough is really enough.

I have been trying to up load a video of Jack. I am now uploading to Flickr to see if I can actually get it on the blog. Jeepers but they make it difficult sometimes.

This is a video-lets see if it works on the blog……It actually does work, but you have to click on it. Try it.

Off to sew and knit.

Love the Jack-cam. Looks like he hasn't missed too many meals. What is he - 3/4 of a Happy?
