Doing Everything Canadianly Possible

You'll be happy to know that I've got all but the most medical related politics out of my system, at least until January. I've done everything Canadianly possible (except enter into politics) to participate in the system: I voted, I wrote my MP, I discussed it with family members, I bitched about it on my blog, and I enjoyed reading other people's opinions about the situation. I especially enjoyed the Yarn Harlot's post on the matter. She has a different point of view than I do on the issue, but I think it's great. She is also far more articulate than I am when it comes to political things.

As for the cutest PJ fabric ever that my dad bought me...

... He got it at Capital Iron and the buttons from the local button shop. Apparently they are the last of those buttons they had in, but I'm confident they exist elsewhere or could order more in for anyone interested.

I have also been working on a Christmas/holiday blouse.

I want to finish sewing it before the Guild Christmas party, but since I'm attending the Knotty by Nature grand opening and then going to see my specialist in Seattle for a few days between now and then, I don't know if I'll get it done in time.

Let's see, what else have I been up to? Oh yes, some weaving. Not much mind, but a bit here and there.

I too really enjoyed reading Stephanie's post. It's great that she took the time to write it all down so clearly for everyone to understand better what was happening.
I think you have a wonderful dad! I said the other day that it was a really nice gift, but knowing that he went to two different stores to find the perfect fabric and buttons for you makes it even better!
I can't wait to see what you have on your loom. It must be a delight to weave with this Peruvian Baby Silk!

Your right - that really IS the cutest pajama fabic ever! I may have to drive to Canada to get some. I wonder how to convince my husband...? He likes mountains a lot - any mountains near by I could bribe him with?
