Closing Ceremony

First I want to say how much I enjoyed the Summer Olympics. I don't usually watch them and was actually quite surprised that it was on every time I was home. Justin even watched them with me. Our Favorite was Misty and Kerri for the Beach Volleyball. I liked our other team too but these 2 had us on the edge of our seats. Synchronized swimming and diving was also another one we got into. I always said I would never watch them , well we did. I am proud of all our teams and the other countries even the ones who didn't get a medal. They made it to the Olympics and should be proud of themselves.
Now I LOVED the opening ceremony but the closing was ok.
Remember I started a new piece for an Olympic challenge? I started it during the Opening Ceremonies and stitched on it til 7 pm last night. My parents invited Justin and I to watch the ceremonies at their house, They bought 2 HD tvs and said we had to come over. So now I want a HD tv lol.

Anyways here is what I did during the Olympics. She will go into my rotation.
HAED Faces of Faery 66
25 ct - 1x1

I also bought 2 new charts since HAED had a 50% sale and who can pass those up. I bought Faces of Feary 81 by JBG and also Boo by Spangler. There are 4 of us starting Boo as a SAL and will start January 1. Should be fun.

I also received a pkg in the mail from a friend, full of specialty floss, tea, bookmarks, 3 cozy mystery books and a HAED. Love getting pkgs in the mail.

Nice progress on your stitching during the Olympics, Shelleen.

I've had an HDTV for about 6 years and the picture is definitely better. Maybe you can get one for Christmas? There are usually great sales then.
