My apologies to my readers who aren’t interested in baseball. Until the playoffs are finished, you will want to scroll through my postings down to the sewing, cat, or whatever parts you like.
In the meantime . . . . .
Well, our Ranger boys flubbed it tonight. They were coasting along, 5-0 when the eighth inning fell all to pieces and the Yankees caught up, then surpassed, our score. Say it isn’t so, Joe.
In the 4th inning, our pitcher, CJ Wilson has an 0-3 lead. Smooth sailing.
In the 4th inning when Josh Hamilton came up to bat, it was 0-5. Life was good.
Then in the 8th inning, kablooey! All h*ll broke loose. What can we say except it’s only Game One. We must not give up yet.
Before the wheels fell off of the Ranger’s Express train, I was able to work on tracing and cutting out the fusible web for the appliqué pieces needed on the Poinsettia Wreath wall hanging I’m working on. Flower centers and leaves are done. Poinsettia flower petals next round.
I also managed to get the gold pieced blocks finished and added to the design board late last night/early this morning.
It’s only crooked on the board, not because of my sewing. I promise.
In the spirit of the season, I’m adding a carved pumpkin at the end of this post, with more coming in the future.
You can get stencils for the featured pumpkins at TexasRangers.com.
