Well, I normally tend to keep things like politics off my blog, but I thought it was worth mentioning that my little absentee vote will be winging its way over to the US next week, to be counted with its brothers and sisters. As I vote in Maryland, I shouldn't think my vote will be needed to reach a decision, but it's there in case. Those of you who know me at all, will know who I voted for... After living outside the US for so long, I feel a little odd voting in US elections, and in fact, I don't vote for things like "pick no more than 3 candidates for the local school board" - I've no idea who these people (all women this year) are and who will do a good job. But frankly, who is President of the US makes a huge difference not only within the US, but on the world stage, so I'm glad to have the chance to have my say in that part of the election, at least.
So, that's some outgoing post - I also FINALLY got to the post office and mailed off the birthday blocks to Julie (sorry to take so long!), the arch to Patsy, the lotto blocks to Barbara and Michele and the mini quilt to Colene - so if you are any of those people reading this (and I'm fairly sure all of you but Michele at least pop in from time to time) the items should be with you soon. Thanks for your patience!
On to the incoming post - more lotto blocks. These are from Rho, Michele and Shelli and again, will help make a very nice little baby quilt. Which, who knows, I may even get made some time this year. Or not!
This has been a very unproductive week for me, though I'm planning to get some serious sewing time in tomorrow and Sunday - in the mornings at least. I have a lot of things which need doing, so hopefully plans will not "gang agley". And next week will be a little low on sewing time as well, as I have been offered some work at school in the mornings, for two weeks - which is great - it will be fun, as it's doing some cover in the nursery, which I really enjoy - and of course, a little money will be nice.
