First about the quilt top. If I'm not careful I will become a "topper" instead of a quilter, lol. Right now I have 4 quilt tops done that need to be quilted. I think next week I will get to it and load my super quilter and keep it humming all week. This is my most recent top that I have finished. I got the pattern from McCall's Quilting (Merry Go Round), but I just call it hexes. Such an easy method to do hexagons with no set in seams. I really like the result. This one will be a wall hanger for sure.
Now about the election. I am so happy about the results, and am hopeful about the future of our country. Barack Obama seems to be such a caring and honest man, which is what we need at this point . I was so inspired by his acceptance speech that I cried, as did my husband and mother-in-law. When he said these words, "And to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn, I may not have won your vote tonight, but I hear your voices. I need your help. And I will be your president, too", I felt such a sense of a new start. Maybe he can be the one to end all this hatred between the D's and the R's. Nuff said. Let's all just try to think positive and do all we can to move forward.
Now I have to work the weekend before I can get to quilting!! Darned work!! But, I have broken down the time I have left into work days instead of months (25) or years (2 yrs and 1 month), so now I have 178 days to work until I retire!! Sounds much better!!
