    It's Election Night - Let's Sew!

    What a great night to settle in at our sewing machines and knock off some of those UFOs!

    Who is voting with me for more quilting?

    I'm not blue and I'm not red tonight - color me quilted!

    I second that motion Mrs. Speaker!

    Color me OVER the election.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    Yep - sounds like wonderful idea. I have been sorting patterns looking for ones that will work with fabric I bought on a recent trip (without a pattern in advance). I really should have an idea what I want to use it for before buying! When will I ever learn!!!! LET'S GO QUILTING!!

    I did just that. I had The Blaze on my Ipad and was listening to the election results and finishing up a Batik Sampler. I will post a picture of it tomorrow.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I am not quilting, but I am drafting a paper pieced pattern to work on the round robin quilts that my guild is working on... I threatened to rip the phone off the wall last night... it must have rung 14 times between 3 and 9... So thankful it's over now

    I just got back power at 1 this afternoon. It is finally warm in this house and I am just relaxing and resting a sprained ankle. I have off until Tuesday and dh has to work on Wed, thurs, Fri and Mon so the machine will be moving over the next couple of days. I lost power for 8 days while the neighborhood lost it for 2 days. It was too cold to hand quilt so I didn't get anything done but I hope to make up for it the next 4 days.

    It is easier to be wise for others than for ourselves.

    I'm so glad you finally have power. Have fun making up for lost time on your machine.
