Day 14 of the 2010 Olympics

In a way, I wish the Olympics could last for a month!
I'm having such fun, and I never knew it would be this exciting.
Each day gets better than the one before! Today, Thursday, February 25, is Day 14.
I worked on an outfit for Yvette Marie, who wishes to be like the Canadian women's hockey team, who won Gold for the 4th time in a row in Olympics! They beat the USA team, 2-0.
I made a tiny puck out of clay, and it was baking in the oven when I took this photo.
Can you guess what the hockey stick actually is?
"Wow, Maman! Look at all the people in Canada Hockey Place!"

"Does this mean that Team Canada will really win?"
"Yes, they DID win! I want to play just like them!
Maman, I need ice skates!"

I think she is one of the bravest women I've seen. Her mother died suddenly on Sunday morning after flying here to Vancouver. I don't know how Joannie did it.
I wish I could give her a big hug!
And so ends another fantastic Olympic day. Never have I experienced quite the thrill this event has given me.

I think everyone was rooting for her. I was right with her as she skated and sighed with relief when she skated a clean program. I don't know how she did it. I kept thinking of the American speed skater back in the 80's who learned that his sister had died a few hours before his race. It was sad and he ended up falling. It's just got to be so hard to concentrate under those circumstances.

Bleuette looks great. Is she French Canadian?
