Game 6 of the World Series was back and forth, tied in the 9th, then the Rangers had to play two more innings.  But they didn’t win.  That was okay.  There was still another game left to win it.  Game 7 – the Rangers scored two runs in the first inning, and it was downhill from there.

So close yet so far away!  The World Series trophy went to the St. Louis Cardinals this year, but not without a fight!  I’m still a big Texas Rangers fan.  I haven't given up on them since I started watching them in 1996 and I'm not giving up now.

Completed block #43 of Brackman’s Civil War Quilt block of the week.  It’s called Right Hand of Friendship (although I keep thinking its name was Hands All Around for some reason).

43 Right Hand of Friendship

After taking the picture, I noticed a bit of smudging of “Best Press” on some spots that aren’t visible to the naked eye.  So weird. 

Although the block is supposed to be 8 1/2” square, I came out to a perfect 8 1/4”.    Points are pretty good, the parts matched up pretty well and there are 1/4” seams on each side so I can’t really complain too much.   Anyway, I got week 43 finished just hours before week 44 will be posted by Ms. Brackman.

It’s time for me to wind down now after the stress of watching the game and the fun of putting together another CWQ block.

  1. Win or lose, we LOVE our Rangers. They have done an awsome job this year. Still need to work on the pitching, but we will come back even stronger next year. Going to keep game #6 on the DVR so when I have a little baseball withdrawal this winter, I can watch the boys. Your latest bock is great, I don't see a smudge. Did you look at this week block----ugh!

  2. We do love our Rangers!! There is always next year....but so far off!!!


Hey, leave me a comment so I know that I'm not talking to just myself!
