Make-A-List Monday

Make-A-List Monday

This was a great weekend for all my sports teams.  Last week they all lost and this weekend they all won.  The WWPHS Pirate football team beat Princeton and the NY Mets swept the Miami Marlins at Citi Field.  The Trojans, the Jets and the Cowboys all won their respective football games.  The NY Yankees are holding on to a slim lead in the American League East.  

Unfortunately for the NY Jets, they have lost Darrelle Revis, their star cornerback, for the season with a torn ACL.  He had just returned to the team after suffering a concussion a few weeks ago.  This is a terrible blow for the team.  Now everyone else on the team will have to step up.  The defense has to stop the run game and get off the field after third down.  Quite a tough task without Revis.  


The Week Of September 17, 2012

(in review)



1.  Attend a Mets game at Citi Field.  


We had terrific seats to watch the NY Mets play at Citi Field.  


It was so much fun to go to a game with Kyle, Heather and Baby Ryder.


Although we have such fond memories of Shea Stadium (ever wonder why our daughter is named Shea?), Citi Field is a beautiful ballpark.



2.    Continue to work on Shea's gray, yellow and white quilt.  Shea's quilt is pieced and ready to be quilted.  Here is a sneak peek:



3.  Spend some time with my new embroidery machine learning how to use the embroidery unit.  I've spent about 5 hours playing with "Emmy."  I have only scratched the surface learning all the things I need to know, to use her to her full potential.  I embroidered a bib for Ryder.  

4.  Work on my two September blocks for the Quilt Square Quilt Along.  I did not get to this.  

5.  Work on an English Paper Piecing project I started about five years ago.  This is still a UFO.  This week maybe????
