In Waiting

Monday, November 5th, 2012

Mr C and I are passionate about our politics. We always find ourselves in limbo when there is a presidential election. I think we are more nervous this year than ever before and we have been through many elections. So we are looking forward to getting on with our lives, whatever happens tomorrow. And tonight, we retire with this as our mantra.

I am keeping busy tomorrow. I have a guild board meeting and then a luncheon meeting with the other 2 co-chairs of Artists Among Us. We are going to get our call to artists our earlier this year.

I spent a lot of time working on a couple of Constant Contact mailings for SDA. I kept doing edits, sending it out, then waiting for 2 or 3 people to weigh in, etc., etc., etc. I think we finally have them tweaked.

This is what my sewing table looks like while the Janome is in hospital! If there is an empty space, I will fill it up. I have the filigree pieces printed on freezer paper — just need to iron it to fabric and do some cutting.

I also pumped up the color in a few places on the Kelp Dance piece with some fabric pens. I think I have achieved some better contrast.

By the way, I got my website up to date. If you click on New up there on the left, I have all of my quilts from the last two years posted.

Fired up, ready to go!!
