    Hi All,

    I have two friends coming over to sew for the day.
    DH and the dog are watching the Super Bowl.

    We are all having PIZZA for dinner (except the dog).

    What are you doing Super Bowl Sunday?

    We're watching our Saints for sure! No party here, just me, the kids and hubby.

    (Totally off topic but I used to live in Olympia. I miss the northwest.)

    Of course!

    You finish two large quilts ahead of time to the point of attaching the binding. Once the pre-game begins, you start hand sewing your binding, slowly and very carefuly. When the commercials begin, you stop. Get something to eat that DH cooked and once they begin to play again you start binding again. By the time the game is over your quilts are binded and DH can not say you left him alone.

    This quilter doesn't. However, I will be with the Super Bowl fans in spirit as I make chili this weekend, lol!

    I figure by Sunday we'll definitely be dug out from the record snowfall that's supposed to hit, so I will brave the roads for the Sunday papers and more bottled water. I have enough to make it through the weekend, but not as much as I'd like. Hope the store will have my gallons of distilled on Sunday.

    Oh, yay. We'll be watching - more for the commercials than the actual game. I'll be doing my hand applique for dd wedding quilt and dh will be doing his wood carving. There is always hand work to be done and that is actually my favorite part.

    Oh yes, I will be watching. Have all day to sew, game doesn't start till late in the day. I do have to say I am a Payton fan but would be nice to see ST's win. It should be a good game. I always make spare ribs and we eat in front of the TV. Yippy!

    I have to go to friend's house. Football is a big deal for them. They'll be in the dark with the game projected on the wall, so I'll just try to be a good sport and go along for sake of visiting. I'd much RATHER be home sewing and watching the last episode of Emma on Masterpiece Theater. (Luckily I can catch that last show online.)

    Oh Heck Yeah!!! GO COLTS!!! My favorite NFL team for about 15 years.. I am thrilled that they are back at the superbowl. Quilting will need to be before and after because during I will be squealing..

    It's amazing how much quilting can get done even while football is on TV. Might have to spend a little more time watching the screen this time, though.
