Squares 14 and 15

The first square is wine, and it was shamelessly cribbed from inspired by Lisa's grape square. We live near wine country (there are some pretty good vineyards on the North Fork of Long Island), and wine is a staple in this house. Unfortunately, the fact that I did not plan this square shows because I do not think the layout is very good. I am pleased with the way the corkscrew came out, however, even if it was a last-minute filler for a giant white space in the square. The grapes are french knots using two different purples together.

The second square is for my beloved Red Sox. We have (or had very recently) the third best record in the American League, which you think would guarantee us a spot in the playoffs, but the best two teams are also in our division. Which means we won't be playing in October unless the Rays and/or the Yankees implode in a spectacular manner. What makes it even more frustrating is that we are playing so well despite the fact that seventeen players, including many key ones, have ended up on the DL this season. Just think how well we'd be doing if only Youkilis, Pedroia, and the rest had never gotten injured.
