I wasn't sure what to write about today. The election, some new quilt stuff, Halloween? I don't think I told you all that I am going in for my first colonoscopy on Friday. So I took today off from work to get my house cleaned, laundry done and a chance to relax a little bit. I'm a little nervous about it, but I am a year overdue for it as well. So there's that.
The election? I could not be happier with the results. Michigan has a Republican gov. and the house is back in GOP control. More importantly, many of those elected are good fiscal conservatives. Change is coming, hopefully some relief for our troubled economy as well. Time will tell. I believe the second wave will come in 2012.
I participated in Heather Ross's studio sale recently. It was quite an experience. You chose how much you wanted to spend and told her what kind of things you were looking for. I know this will surprise you but I asked for fabric! This is what I received. Some Flea Market fancy and some Mendacino.
Now those are not quite FQs but I figure it is probably around 3 yards. I do have to say it ended up being kind of pricey. I don't know what these fabrics sold for originally but it seems like they were a little expensive. I'm thrilled with the fabrics, I guess my expectations were just a little off. Did anyone else participate in the sale? What did you think? I also got this card, here are both sides.
I really like the little girl with her candy!
Well, off to do laundry and some cleaning before quilting tonight. Have any of you started your first Layer Cake QAL blocks yet? I am looking forward to doing mine tonight!
