I am not a sports fan. Growing up the only sports my dad ever watched was the World Series. I do remember watching Roberto Clemente and the Pittsburgh Pirates play. He died not long after that.
And I grew up in basketball crazy Indiana. That's about it for sports for me
But, I managed to stay busy on Super Bowl day with some finishing.
It is a little embarrassing to admit I finished stitching this project in 2010. I had planned all this time to finish it as a pillow and even had some hot pink tassel trim for the edge. But I am running out of room for pillows!
So, while at JoAnn's looking for a card box to finish the Istitch Mystery from 2011, I found this larger square box and it worked just fine! I painted the box black but it turned out to be more like a black stain than paint.

WDW Romance & Onyx threads
Here is the inside--fabric and ribbon is from my stash.
Next project was the needlepoint kit Fleur De Lys that I got at my ANG stash exchange in November. I picked up this box there too (from a different table). I substituted Vineyard Silks for the old wool threads in the kit.
I thought the two looked great together. I'm taking it for show and tell to our next meeting and hopefully the original owners will like the repurposing I did!

Next project was my new granddaughter's baby quilt. I have been working on the embroidery squares for a few months but finished the quilt top this weekend. Click on the picture for a closer look. This is my first attempt at a quilt and I am going to a "help" class on Friday to get started on the quilting part.
There is still a big pile of finishing to do. Hopefully I'll stay in the mood for a few more days.
Have a great week!
