I took the last quilting stitch yesterday afternoon and got the quilt squared up, ready for binding! Guess I’ll be unpacking my sewing machine, as with any luck, I should be able to get the binding sewn on tomorrow … then I can pack it up to take with and stitch the binding down in the condo in the evenings after dinner. I’ve got the binding strips cut … from the red used for the centers and the narrower border.
While DH and I watching the hockey game, I put together another ornament … the 4th. I have one more to put together. I hope I can remember to stop at Michael’s on my way home from DD’s this evening to pick up some small jingle bells for the wreath … I’ve got the red ribbon.
DH and I stopped in at the Walgreens Take Care clinic on our way to vote yesterday, hoping that we’d get there in time to avoid a wait … only to discover that there was an hour’s wait. Thankfully they now schedule appointments … the soonest I could get in was 9:00AM tomorrow. But at least I'll be getting my flu shot.
I am glad that this election is over, although I’m having a hard time finding local election results. I do wish I could find a truly objective source for where the candidates stand on more than just one or two hot-topic issues. It’s so hard to know where the candidates stand with all the negative ads, and it seems like every analysis comes with an agenda (sometimes a not-so-subtle agenda).
I’m not sure whether I’ll be doing much more blogging before we leave … as I mentioned yesterday, the next several days will be busy ones! I’m watching the Ts today, sewing on binding, setting aside as much as I can for our trip without DH growing suspicious, flu shot, and dinner with friends tomorrow, an all-day quilt retreat Friday, and a swim meet Saturday and Sunday. (It seems like it’s all or nothing here at Chez Nana … I either have nothing going on like last week or something going on every day like this week. )
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
