As much as I LOVE Christmas... that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about highschool football season! Even though I graduated highschool in 2002 from West Orange-Stark, going to the Mustang football games is one of my favorite things to do. It's always so much fun.. the atmosphere of the band playing.. yes I played clarinet in band and even some in college.. the stadium lights and all of the people you rarely get to see all laughing and talking and catching up on things.. and most importantly the ever-changing group of boys out there playing on the field. Despite the fact that I don't know any of them personally anymore, I still know their brothers or cousins and horror of horrors one day their Moms and Dads. I grew up believing in Mustang pride and tradition, all thanks to my Mom. Our school has a winning football team. We are ALWAYS district champions. We always go to the playoffs at least two or three rounds. We're always state ranked... usually in the top five.. sometimes just the top ten. A tradition like that is something to be proud of. Well, throughout all the years I accumulated several tee shirts since they sell new ones every year. Over the years, some of them no longer fit or have holes or tears or they just aren't my favorites anymore.. so, they were just stuffed in a drawer nearly forgotten. Well, I decided that I wanted to do something that would allow me to appreciate all of these shirts for many, many years to come. Instantly, I thought of this... a tee shirt quilt! It would be perfect! I could lay it out at the warm games to sit on and during the cold games in playoff season it would be perfect for snuggling up and blocking cold winds! So, I researched tutorials, gathered my shirts and got to work. I was so happy that I was even able to use some of my senior shirts which were special to me.. one of them even has the entire classes signatures screen printed on it. I put that one in the middle since it's my favorite of them all. Well, enough blabbing.. sorry for the whole novel I just wrote! Here is my tee shirt quilt.. my Mom is the crazy lady all bundled up in it. This was at a coooold playoff game just two weeks ago. I'm really thrilled that I'll have it for many playoff games to come!
