Loara Standish - Week 5

Band 14 was finally completed late last night, which is why my post is a few days later then usual.  


A rocky start to this band, where I had to rip out and restitch because of either my stitcher error or direction error, of where this band was to start.


This band is a full 7 1/2".  Which perhaps is another reason, why it took me longer.  I have two very short bands, but band 17 is another very long, very detail band.  But...still gets me closer to the end, which is band 24.

Things have been so quiet this week.  Today, I went out and voted.  My civic duty!  Took my mom with me.  She voted too.   I guess our county didn't want to take the risk of problems with all those touch screen voting machines, and everyone had to fill out a paper ballot which then was scanned into a machine.  Small line when we got there, but I don't think the whole process took more than 25 minutes total. 

Tonight, it will be all over for another 4 years.  I'm particularly pleased as this voting cycle has been filled with apprehension, consternation, and frustration.  I have been praying for our country, and pray that whoever, this country decides to elect, that they can bring the country together, and get on with the business of supporting our country and the people that they represent.

With that I will end....Happy Stitching!
