It’s Race Day

The NASCAR race is in Sonoma today.  It’s a road course, not my favorite type of race, but I will still be watching it.  I have to cheer my driver, Kasey Kahne on.  He’s not having a great year.  It is, however, better than the last two.  He finishes well here.  Maybe his first win of the year will come today.  I sure hope so.

My kids call me a Redneck.  Can you believe that?  They think it’s funny that I watch the races. Funny thing is, I got interested in it when my son was young in the ’80’s.  He teases that since I have moved south I have gone over to the dark side.  LOL

My husband has been a fan since before we were married.  We actually were going to a race at the Trenton Speedway and it was rained out.  Of course his favorite driver was Richard Petty.  He never liked Ernhardt.  If he was the bad boy of racing, Petty was the gentleman.  Now that I understand about racing, I can understand why Petty was his favorite.

Have a good Sunday.


It’s Race Day Sunday!

Today they are racing in Pocono, PA. Kasey has done well at this track in the past and has a win there. He needs a win to get into the chase and I’m hoping it will be here. He was third fastest in final practice yesterday. I’m all ready to watch the race with my son and his fiance and hubby. Can’t you tell?

Go Kasey Winnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!

Collapsible Thread Catchers

Have you seen these? They are too cute. They are collapsible thread catchers. This past Tuesday at guild meeting we had a workshop on making them. You make them with a four inch wooden embroidery hoop. (inside hoop only) and a fat quarter of fabric. Very clever. I can’t for the life of me figure out how anyone came up with this. And I can’t figure out what makes them stand up. They are very handy to take with you to guild or wherever you go. Here is a link to directions. Give them a try. Bet you can’t just make one. 🙂 Last night my grandchildren had their dance recital. I was unable to attend, but my daughter sent me a photo she took after their dances. Here are Andrew and Alannah holding their trophies.

Today was the Dover race. I am a big, big Kasey Kahne fan. Well he had the best run he’s had in a few weeks. He finished 4th. I am so happy. I just love racing season. He was driving the Farmers Insurance 5 today. Congrats Kasey!
