Olympic Stitching

Hi everyone,

I have really enjoyed watching the first week of competition.  Swim, swim, swim...paddle, paddle, paddle.  I can actually watch the swimming live (well, taped delayed) without knowing the results, but the gymnastics is another story.  I just finished watching the ladies (girls) team final and wasn't it nice to know ahead of time that we WON.  I cried anyway.  I felt SO bad for those little Russian girls - that is worse than the agony of defeat!

Here at home we are working on our doggie paddle event.  Emily is a great swimmer, but we have a boat so it's best that everyone have a life vest.

And here she is trying it out in the pool

We cut the tag off after that -  she is not Minnie Pearl!

And here is my Olympic stitching - I was behind but Ruth has given us 3 weeks to catch up...

Good thing needlepoint is not an Olympic event.  I would have a hard time finishing and getting a medal!

Enjoy the rest of the games,
