Did you vote today? I did. Less than 100 years ago, women were not allowed to vote in the USA; in some countries they still can't vote. Susan B. Anthony was the matriarch of getting women the right to vote in this country. Voting is a privilege and everyone should exercise their voting rights.
My weekend was wonderful. The drive out to my stitching retreat was fun as I spent a lot of time driving through the Texas hill country - beautiful! The retreat was great. We go to this place every fall. I like the food, I like the accommodations, but the chairs in the stitching room stink - conference chairs! I won a doorprize (Pine Mountain Pillow kit).
I made the mistake of looking at the hand-dyed fabric on the sales table and ended up coming home with some. The colors probably won't show up adequately, but here they are: Zweigart Lime Green and Renaissance Red by Lakeside Linens. I have no idea what to stitch on the red fabric, but I couldn't pass it up. I'll stitch something "halloweeny" on the green fabric.
I got a decent amount of stitching done on "Liberty Lane" in between talking with my tablemates and looking at the work of other stitchers.
In regards to weekend sporting events, as a Cowboys fan, I am now wearing a paper bag over my head, my Aggies beat DH's Red Raiders, and the Texas Rangers did their best in their first appearance ever at the World Series.
