From the first kick, Saskatchewan was doomed. Whether is was the cold, or that fact that we did not need to win this game to get into the play offs (unlike Edmonton which had to win this game), the Riders blew this game. After the first couple of minutes it looked like maybe we would shake off the terrible start - but no. They did put in a valiant effort in the last 2 minutes, but by this time almost every Saskatchewan Rough Rider fan was booed out of the stadium by gloating Edmonton Eskimo fans yelling at us to go home. We did not want to mention that we all live here and our taxes are paying for the stadium upgrades. Lots of people did bus in from home, but they left sad and did I on my short walk home.
Ah, but who cares about football? Lets talk about some quilting and knitting! I have decided to make my first pinwheel sampler quilt into a lap quilt. I love piecing, but it sure is time consuming. It took me all day to do this:
Kaffe Fasset, meet Kate Spain. I think they like each other.
Even though the Riders blew the game, I did get some pics of some great costumes:
|Don't worry he is not pushing me away, he was actually patted my arm and I asked permission to take his pic.|
|This was this guys stag night - lovely dress, great lace details. ha ha|
