    I'm not a big sports watcher, but I do usually watch the Super Bowl. A few years back I realized that it's mostly the commercials that I was paying attention to, so now I have my own tradition for SBS - I sew during the game & stop to watch the commercials! :lol: :lol: :lol:
    This year I have a couple of blocks I've commited to donate, so those I'll do first, then I'm working on my Challenge Quilt for my Guild's quilt show in May. The quilt show is "The Artist in Everyone" & the challenge theme is "Show Your Colors" (or something close to that!) I have the quilt planned out in my head - now to get in done in fabric!

    I don't watch the super bowl either but I do love the commercials. I figure this year will be just like any other day sense my DH has to work. I will be chasing my 3yr old and trying to stop my 14 an 16 from fighting and killing each other, all while dreaming about the quilt I need to finish, the curtains I want to make for the kitchen and the next project I would love to start.
    Oh well!!!! Some day????

    Our church has a big family party with a huge screen set up for the game and activities for all ages and lots of food. DH is helping set up and will stay and watch the game. (this is the only sports game he watches all year, unless one of our kid's is participating)
    A couple of my LQS's have great sales on Sunday. I am still trying to decide if I am going to join the crowds and shop (I really don't NEED fabric, I just want it) I may just stay home alone all day and sew. My son will be up here for the weekend and I imagine he'll join his dad. I may go over there for a short time (It's basically down the street and across another, walking distance) Havn't decided yet.

    I know I will not be watching the Super Bowl...and I hope I will be working on my watercolor quilt, if the kit comes in tonight or tomorrow. But I've told myself I have to get the house cleaned, groceries bought, and clothes washed first. Talk about motivation! Then again, I do live by myself ... so who cares if Idon't get that stuff done? ;-)

    I plan on getting all the "game food" ready ...setting up everything...the kicking back and enjoy the afternoon of being able to sew because everyone else will be occupied!! I enjoy the game too but I can see it from my machine so its the best of both for me!!

    We're going to watch the game with some friends. Frankly, I'd rather stay home and do something quilting-related since I'm not a huge fan of either team, but like them both. Just not really enough to get excited, even though I live in Louisiana!

    So, in sum, hang out, eat, and drink a little. Just a little. :)

    Sit on the couch with the game on, watch every commercial, eat, and do some wool applique too.

    Well, apparently "we" don't have a stake in this years game, so it's going to be very low key. There won't be a moment of football action missed, though...at least by certain male members of my family. I'll catch the commercials :)

    Sew or shop! All the quilt stores around me will be open. If I sew it will be on the wedding quilt I'm making. Lots of arcs to do yet!

    My LQS is having a "Sit and Sew" from 9:30 - 5:00, so I'll be there. They'll have chili & crackers, and hot water for coffee and tea. We take our machines, anything we may want to share with others, our own beverages (if want sometihkng special), and whatever projects we want to work on. I've not been to one before, so I'm excited.

    Now, just how much of my stash can I be reasonably expected to use up???????????????????

    I will be sewing the binding on my Son's quilt trying to get it done, so I can start another one. We don't watch any sports.

    Super Bowl?????
    What super bowl?

    OH! That's the game that is played between all the new and great commercials! ;)

    Yeah, I watch for the commercials. We tend to make all snakc breaks and other breaks during the game and do our best to be there for the commercials.

    We are having my DD and son in law over to watch and just enjoy being together. Kid's want pizza so that will be easy - order it and son in law will pick it up on his way here from work.

    Whatever you are doing on Sunday during that time ---- enjoy.

    I'll be in my sewing room. Don't much care for football but this year the Indianapolis Colts will be in it and since I'm in Indiana, I'm sure I'll tune in every now and then. GO COLTS! :lol:

    Now this afternoon, there will be a NASCAR race (go TONY) so I'll be glued to the TV in a bit. This is the 1st race of the season and I'm having race withdrawals... :lol: :lol:

    I will probably listen to the game, we have no cable, and sew some borders on a RR and get some blocks ready to applique for a block swap. Yes next week is the big one for me. I too love to watch and listen to NASCAR go Tony and Dale Jr for hubby. Have a great week everyone. Happy Valentine's day

    I'm with you sewjoyce

    My DH, his daughter, her husband their son and I watch NASCAR and each have different favorite drivers. It gets interesting via phone as the kids live in PA and we are in TN. but there are frequent phone calls on race day.

    GO TONY, DALE JR, J GORDON, KASEY KANE AND (I forgot who our grandson roots for I think Kenseth)
