I confess to being a political news junkie...even when it is driving me crazy I will watch the debates, the pundits and the eventual election returns (doesn't matter which party is running.) How bad is it? Well when everyone else in line at the grocery store is stocking up on snacks for the football games my cart is packed with political debate snacks. (generally I try and buy things that will not hurt the TV is hurled at it from the couch....)
So as I can almost see South Carolina from the front of my house (ok I have to walk to the end of the street...) this has been a long week for us. On the other side I also plan some hand-sewing or quilting for this political extravaganza and have made good progress on some UFO's that needed binding and my Sprigs and Stars project. (My goal was 8 blocks a month and right now I have 10 finished for January!)
On the down side big projects like putting the borders on my Orca Bay mystery are harder to do while the TV is on. Also, it being a rainy day I can't lay the to out to pin the last two borders onto the quilt without danger of some muddy paw-prints crossing the quilt. (nice idea but not for this quilt!) It took a bit longer to make the borders than I expected.
When I laid out the blocks there were 6 missing. Of course I immediately blamed Brownie-the-block-thief and started searching all the usual places...found two under the couch. Decided it was easier to just remake the last four blocks...
