In 1969 Vince Lombardi (yes, that Vince Lombardi) was the Redskins’ coach.  It was also the year I discovered football, and I have not looked back.  I am a huge fan.

So I thought given that the “Skins” are on Monday Night pre-season tonight, and it’s a national game, I might try my hand at some football gestures. John Riggins was the MVP of Superbowl 17, and forever holds a special place in my football heart.  Here are two similar sketches with different colors, and one much looser than the other.

I am an older woman. I am an artist and a needleworker. I love to craft. I love to sew and knit and crochet and needlepoint. I love to paint and draw and make art with my hands. At this moment in time I am crazy for punchneedle. Being creative is what gets me up in the morning. Art is my tea, my fresh air, my good book, and my cat all rolled into one. I have much to share and hope you'll visit often.
