excitement is building

I have been way too quiet here this week. Jim is out of town; his first trip away since October; it's been weird not having him home.

On the crafting front; doing the fabric wreath last week has aggravated my carpal tunnel to the worse I have ever experienced. My wrist is actually bruising; I can't spend more than 5minutes on the computer than I'm done for a few hours. Handwriting? Don't even mention it; I can barely hold a pen. Thankfully, I'm in for a massage tomorrow and I know Sharon will fix me up pretty good. And yell at me while doing so lol.

As a result, there has been little crafting done. I have been working on more Dollie Quilts. I have 4 finished, and this one ready to put together than I can quilt them.

But all of this will soon be on the backburner. Tomorrow, the 2010 Winter Olympics kick off in Vancouver. On Sunday, we went and saw the Torch pass through our town.

It was such a fantastic, amazing thing to see.

Than, getting home Jim gets a phone call from his boss. That phone call resulted in these...

Four tickets to see Canada Women's hockey team take on Slovakia Saturday evening. We are BIG hockey fans here; this is HUGE for us. Tickets are row 6 behind the penalty box. Never ever could I have imagined getting to see an Olympic event of any kind. This is a once in a lifetime experience and we can not wait.



  1. Congratulations on the hockey tickets but sorry about the pain you are experiencing. Read your blog everyday and love it all. You inspire me to want to make my own cards, for now I'll stick with sewing. Feel better.

  2. Tickets for an Olympic event?! Wow!! It is a dream of mine...and I wouldn't care what event it would be! I would even watch curling!!

  3. Wow! That is fantastic! I can't even imagine how it will be to be there! Have fun!

  4. Your poor hand! Crafters cannot afford to lose use of their hands! Hope it gets better real soon:) And as for those olympic tickets...well, if you come down with a bad case of anything I'd be happy to take them off your hands;)

  5. Oh how tremendously exciting!!!!!! (no clapping though -you must allow yourself to heal!!!) - hockey is awesome therapy! :-) enjoy!

  6. I am so sorry that your hand is bothering you! I hope your massage will help!

    How exciting for you to go to a Olympic event...WOW! Have a most fabulous time!

  7. Sorry your hand is bothering you.

    Congrats on the hockey tickets!

  8. What great tickets! You lucky dog! I'm jealous. Sorry that you're experiencing so much pain. I hope the massage helps. Enjoy the Games. i'm watching the relay as I type this. Go Canada Go! My sister carried it here in Windsor ON. It was a really exciting experience for her.

  9. Love the dolly quilt here. The colors are beautiful!


I had to put word verification back on; just too much spam! Sorry, I'm not a fan either!!
