Super Bowl/Cross-stitch

Sometimes you just have to bite the they say.....and make the best of a bad situation. My beloved Patriots were NOT in the Super they should have been considering their record. It's been a long, dreary January without them. There was no way we could skip watching the Super Bowl though. Even I am not that vindictive! So....I made some Nachos and Hubby and I hunkered down to watch the game. We picked the Cardinals....although Hubby couldn't figure out why anyone would name their team after a bird. Pretty ferocious, huh? I picked them just because they were the underdog. But it turned out to be one of the best Super Bowls ever. It was a close game, there were some outstanding plays, lots of controversy....everything you'd ever want in a football game. Even though Arizona did not win, it was a great game. And now, without further completely finished cross-stitch:

Time working on it: 10 months

Cost to frame it: $70

Satisfaction over finishing it: Priceless!

Your cross stitch looks gorgeous! What team would name themselves after a bird?? Puhleeze .... has he never heard of the penguins? Hope all is ok up there in the frozen north. No more loss of electricity!
