It was so funny, and I hope you enjoy it.
Today I thought I'd talk about one of other sports I've played, but not one of the most action-packed events. Golf. This wasn't always in the Olympics, it was played in 1900 and 1904, and then not again until 2016! Interestingly, in 1904, the event was won by a Canadian, George Lyon. He and 2 other Canadians played against 31 Americans in an elimination style event. There were 12 nations at this Olympics (held in the USA), so I don't know why there weren't any other countries involved in this one. Also, check out the natty golf uniform:
I wasn't that great at golf, but enjoyed it when I had a chance to play. I haven't had a chance in many years now. DD has expressed an interest, so maybe we'll go out someday and see how she does. Another interesting fact, both men and women competed in golf in all Olympics.
I don't think they've started the golf tourney yet this year, at least I haven't seen any info on it, and it's one of those games where I don't mind watching highlights. :)
Today's start is sort of a 1 of 3, as you'll see by the photo of the eventual finish:
And I got a good start on one ornament last night:
Joyeux Noel by Hands on Design
stitched 1 or 2 over 2 on 28ct Chromatic Alchemy (I forget the name!)
with DMC C321 (Etoile), DMC 310 and WDW Okeefenokee
I used up the last of my Okeefenokee on this one, so the other ornaments will be more similar to the picture of the design. They only call for 2 colours, but I've had this strand of Okeefenokee hanging around and wanted to use it up. I like the look, but I like the look of just 2 colour as well.
These will likely be for DH's family since they all speak French as their first language. I've had this for a few years now and only needed a good excuse to get them started. Thank you again Rachel!
I hope you're all staying healthy and Happy Stitching!
