The Big Game and Give Thanks


Today is the Big Game for MI and OH! U of M vs OH. Of course we all know U of M will win. No I'm not a football fan and won't turn on the game until maybe half time, but for sure in the end. For U of M it's a bittersweet day and of course across MI it's "win it for Bo." Those in USA know Bo was coach of U of M for several years. He retired a few years ago but remained a part of the program. He died of a heart attack yesterday. So accross MI it's "Win it for Bo"

On to other things. Tomorrow is our Annual Harvest Dinner at church. People come in out of the woodwork for this the food is good. Our poor Pastor has been doing so well on his diet and so disciplined he's going off it tomorrow he says. He deserves to.

On the stitching front, I am thoroughly enjoying this piece. I did it 20 years ago and for quite some time I've been wanting to redo it. Thanksgiving being Thursday now was the perfect time to do it. This is progress after 14 hours of stitching. I think it will be done by Thursday at rate it's going. Well until next time Happy Stitching!

I haven't seen this design in a long time. Your stitching is looking great! I'm not into football either, but I got the "pleasure" of seeing this game while I was stitching. (My DH was watching it.)
