Super Bowl Sunday

I can hardly believe it's been a year since I last posted about the SuperBowl. Not that any one much cares about it now, a year later, but I was really into the game as our home team, the Seahawks were playing. (They lost. I can't even remember now who they played!!! Shows now just how truly unimportant all this really is in the scheme of things!!)

Anyway, we are leaving in a few minutes for a Superbowl party. There is also a Chili cookoff, pie contest and potluck dinner. This is my main reason for attending. I have been perfecting a recipe for a pie that I called Burnt Creme Pie, and so I made one to take for the contest. It turns out a little different every time I make it, so it will be interesting to see how it is this time. I am taking my stitching along too, and will probably only stay for a little of the game, since I have absolutely no interest in who is playing this year.

I am still plugging away on the same "D" design as I have been. I didn't even stitch on it this week again, but decided to post a picture anyway. Can you tell it's a D??? (Snort!) Maybe next week I'll have more to show you. I love the colors against the tan background, and it's been a pleasure to stitch, even tho I rarely do a piece that is only cross stitch anymore.

I actually finished our taxes yesterday and got them electronically filed. Lord willin', we should have a nice refund in about 2 weeks. I love this electronic stuff...no more waiting for 2 or 3 months for your refund check! I expect in a few years we will be able to get our refunds in a matter of a day or so and we will think 2 weeks was slow!!!
Well, we need to scoot, or we will be late for the potluck. Have a great week!

Hi. I actually got your blog on the same day it was posted. Will miracles never cease.

Hope you had a good time at your party.

Mmmm, your pie sounds delish! I did a little stitching while watching the game too - as long as we had daylight. :)

Like your D too! What a great series it is!

Your D is very pretty. I love the colour and the fabric. THey go really nicely together. I hope you enjoyed the Superbowl party! Did your pie win the contest?
