Football, Piecing and Quilting

Lughnasa                                Waxing Artemis Moon The Vikings.  I thought Tavaris Jackson looked like his old self, not good news for us.  Rosenfels looked better, not Favre better, but better than Tavaris.  Who is Garrett Mills?  He looked good.  So did Marko … Continue reading

Minnesota — Colorado
