Doll Quilt, Washed & Ready to Go!

Well, it's been awhile since my last post. I've been very busy!! My house has had two birthdays and a big Thanksgiving dinner. I try to fit in a little sewing when I can, but for the rest of the year it will be very little sewing time.

This is my contribution to the Doll Quilt Swap V. I really like how this quilt turned out. The blue and red Kaffe squares work so well together and the black accents really set of the colors. On the work table, the quilt just glowed. I was a little sad to send it off, but I did. I think my partner will like it. I snooped around a bit on Flickr; looking at her favorites and her blog. I think she will like the colors and style. I hope so anyway.

Tomorrow I have to embroider all the logos on the shirts for the Lego League shirts. I want to have them finished by the Monday night meeting so I can cross another job off my list. Somedays, the list just seems to grow faster than I can go to keep up with it.

They gave me a sticker!

Just back from voting. The line really wasn't bad; just make sure you get in the right one. My polling place has 2 precincts voting there and it would be a bummer to wait a long time in the wrong line...

So, go on, vote!


In case you hadn't heard, today is Election Day! So go vote!! And give yourself plenty of time, 'cause there are lines...long lines.

I was going to vote after taking my kids to school today. Well, my polling place and every other one I passed had cars waiting to get into the parking lot and many, many people waiting patiently in lines. Being unprepared - no coat - I decided to come back home for a bit and go back in an hour or so. And when I go, I'll be ready to stand there as long as it takes. I'll have a coat, my iPod, and maybe a book. And I will vote!

No excuses today! Let's Vote!!!

Banana Boy goes Trick or Treating!

Another month over! Time to get into warp speed. Halloween preps consumed most of this week, fortunately the costume was made last year. I just had to re-stuff it (with plastic grocery bags!!) and send him out the door! Now to finish up my DQS5 quilt and start getting ready for all the holidays (and birthdays) between now and the end of the year.

Hope everyone who attended the Houston Quilt Festival had a great time. I didn't get to go this year. Boo hoo! Maybe next year I can get down there again. I just love the show and the classes.
