T Minus 2 and Counting

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!

Yay for you! I am thinking of what to post for today!
Goodluck with your colonoscopy!
When I think of having to do that sometime soon, I wonder why I was so excited about 50!!!
Love your fabric! The little girl with her candy is adorable!
Have a great day!

I love what you got from Heather's studio sale. You didn't say what you spent and neither did I. I posted about mine too a couple of weeks ago!

Michelle said...

Good luck on your procedure.

Brenda said...

I been there done that. The procedure is not as bad as the 24 hours before. But you will fill pounds lighter. Trying the posting every day along with you. I have never posted this many days in a row. We will see how long it lasts. Hope you stop by sometime!

I tried to get to my layer cake block today but didn't make it. Now I will have to wait until Saturday. But I am really looking forward to it.

Good luck tomorrow.

I can't believe I've had to miss two quilting nights in a row and will probably miss next week too. Miss you guys but am thinking of you.
Cute card you got with your fabric but too bad it turned out to be pricy.

I wish we had been as fortunate in the outcome of voting here. Our new govenor will be a dem - but that's what I get for living in a liberal state. I did finish my first layer cake quilt along block yesterday!

Oh, I just had my first C a few weeks ago (about 6 yrs. late) and the actual procedure was a piece o cake. The before--not so fun. AND I thought it was supposed to be every 5 years but I'm supposed to go back in one since they removed ONE STUPID POLYP! I dunno...we'll see! HAHA I was pretty happy with the political outcome..only wish Nevada woulda gotten rid of Reid! UGH!

I hope your colonostomy went well. Yeah the political thing was a real surprise in our state, a change in the House after 30 years and 50 years in the Senate. Change is good!!
