Hello from Detroit, Michigan where I hear it was 80 degrees and sunny last weekend, but this weekend we are experiencing the kind of fall weather we done see much in Northern California...rainy, 40 degrees and very windy (well, I guess we do see this type of weather sometime around January as our winter).

We arrived in Detroit at 3pm on Thursday and had our first games on Friday. The first game we lost to a team from Rhode Island - 0 to 5...and then later in the evening we lost to a team from Detroit - 1 to 4. While it would be fun to have won those games, we don't feel too bad about those scores. Both of the teams we played were very fast, skilled and disciplined...things that we don't quite have but are working towards. This morning we will be playing against a team from Canada.

Time at the airport on Thursday and on the plane allowed me to visit with Wild Berries and we got far in our conversation...here is a phone photo snap of Family Sampler as of Thursday evening:
You'll have to excuse this dark, wrinkly shot...but this is all I could muster up in the dark hotel room .
My visit with Wild Berries has been completed for a while and I am getting to know Clay Pot. She is a shy one, shows off a little bit of a blush when we talk. She will share space on the border of Family Sampler with Wild Berries, showing up every other spot. I guess that they have known eachother since they were in diapers, so hanging out together on the vine border will be very comfortable and they do compliment eachother a lot. I hope to have anyother status photo in the near future of the completed border.

Well, I got to run and make sure that Matthew has finished his breakfast and is packing up his gear back in his bag...got to get ready for the next game!

Take care and remember...

Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often!
