about the artist

In Waiting

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!!

    Oddly, I am not as worried about this election as I was four years ago. I really thought McCain had a wider appeal to moderates than ended up and I wasn’t convinced America as a whole would vote for a mixed race guy. Anyway, I think the media and FB amplify the issues for drama (the tinfoil in my hat makes me believe there may not be as many trolls on FB as it looks like, but that “robo” accounts are skewing the numbers by posting opinions from multiple accounts owned by less than multiple people). While Romney is saying everything people want to hear, I think a slightly larger number want to hear what Obama is saying. I may be naive, but I just don’t see Romney as more electable than McCain was. Fingers crossed just in case though!

    Haven’t had a chance to visit in a while, but it’s good to see that we are of very like mind about the election. I too will be happy when it is over….and FB friends are once again friendly – if I too haven’t already unfriended them!
    Should I be concerned that I’m not receiving any of the SDA info?

    Have a good day, stay busy, and I hope we’ll all be celebrating tomorrow!

    I don’t ever remember being this concerned about an election. I think perhaps because there is such profound differences between the two candidates. Then, there is our govenor race and the referendum on marriage. Sigh, I wish we could all just let people live in peace. I have my knitting ready and walks planned. Fired up, ready to go!!!
