Super Bowl Sales and Game

I haven't stitched in a couple of days, so I missed the deadline for getting my Winter Sampler framed. Such is the stitching life, as real life gets in the way sometimes.

Friends Lynn, Diane and I travelled to Tulsa Saturday to hit the LNSs and their sales. I bought a few charts and fibers at the Silver Needle, and a new lamp also. Across the street at the Stitchworks I bought mostly fibers and entered an hourly drawing. As luck would have it, my name was drawn. From the three choices, I took the 6" Q snaps. One can never have enough Q snaps.

I've read on others blogs where they've met fellow bloggers thinking it would never happen to me. Well, it has. Mary, who lives in Tulsa, contacted me about meeting. We met at the Silver Needle, did our shopping at both stores, then traveled to a very tasty Mexican restaurant for lunch and a long visit. I must say, it was a great day. Mary is fun. Everyone enjoyed meeting her, and we all agreed we needed to do it again. We even may meet at a stitching weekend if possible. Stitchers are great folk.

Had to take a small break to watch the last 55 seconds of the Super Bowl. I didn't have a favorite team, however, I am a fan of the Manning boys. So...

I chose the threads I'm going to use for the Spring Quaker Exchange and cut & prepared the fabric. I bought several skeins of different colors, not knowing exactly what I wanted to use. So, if I don't like the way it's beginning to look, I'll start with another skein.

Hope everyone has a good stitching week.

Hurray on your win :) You're right one can never have enough q-snaps ;)
And the Manning's were blessed with talented, beautiful boys weren't they?!

How great that you were able to meet a fellow blogger/stitcher in person! Spending time at a needlework store during a sale is the BEST!
