The early part of the month simply took on a hectic life of its own ... nine days without a blog entry, a weekend progress report and a Wentzler Wednesday report skipped over entirely, and worst of all, no monthly giveaway on the fourth. Life just happens sometimes, and you either keep pace or get barrelled over. Keeping pace, for me, meant letting go of a few leisure time activities. But I appear to be as caught up as I am likely to get, so I am picking up the various dropped threads and weaving them back into my routines. First back was the blogging over the past two days. Now I am ready to attend to the missed giveaway.
My apologies to any international stitchers who may follow this blog ... but with Election Day looming on our horizon here in the USA, I thought a giveaway of frankly patriotic charts would be appropriate. The charts are Calico Crossroads Star Spangled Scissor Finder and Trail Creek Farms House of Hallelujah. I may be in the minority but I rather like the so called off-year elections because I believe my vote in local and state elections not only has a greater impact on the outcome but that local and state election results have a greater impact on my day-to-day life. So, the question for this giveaway is a simple one: Which is more important to you: Presidential elections or state and local elections [i.e.: Congressional, Gubernatorial, State legislature and town & county races]? Why? The usual conditions will apply: leave an e-mail address in your comment if I won't be led to one by clicking on your user name; please commit to PIF any charts you might win, I'll do the drawing in the usual 10 days [10/23] and e-mail the winner.
