Knitting Continues on Cardiac Collage, Vote !!

Knitted Afghan
I'm a bit delayed in posting the next stage of this knitted afghan, Cardiac Collage.  It's named (for those who may not have been to this blog before), Cardiac Collage, because I started it while sitting in the ER while my husband was having a cardiac event.  The first square made is the middle top.  You can see each square is different in what colors are used, how many colors were used, as well as how big each section is.  Truly no pattern...much like an unpredictable cardiac event.  Since this photograph was taken, the 9th and final square has been started.  As I'm working on it, am trying to decide what color I want to use to edge and join the squares with........AND whether I want to stitch them together, or crochet them together.  Leaning towards blue...the medium blue you see in the middle square bottom row closest to you.


Yesterday by way of my absentee ballot.  I like voting from home, where I'm not rushed, can double and triple check myself and look up issues and people on anything I'm not sure about.  Did you know?

  • You might be able to track your vote? Through on line registration in your county.  I was able to see the date my absentee application was accepted, the date the ballot was mailed out, in a few days I should see the date my ballot was received, followed by the date my ballot was accepted
  • PLEASE remember if you have any trouble when you try to vote with your name, being listed, address etc.  Ask for a provisional ballot.  They must be law give you one.  Don't leave without voting.
    I was surprised to learn this a few days ago.  Time is getting tight; but please check what the situation is where you live and vote.  It's important, even if not a Presidential Election.  Many people have sacrificed for us to have the privileged of voting.  Don't shirk your responsibility.
For my cross stitch friends.  This counted cross stitch was a Christmas gift for older brothers wife many many years ago.  Just came across a picture of it.  It's so appropriate for her, she loves kids, her's and others.

**Hey did you notice, I added a game for you in my right sidebar.  Try your hand at Sudoku

  1. Loving cardiac collage. And yes, voting is a privilege that should be taken up.
    It is compulsory here. Voting registration closes about two weeks before an election but if you are enrolled you MUST vote.

    1. Thanks for the visit. I didn't know that voting was compulsory there...that's good to know. I think it should be here. Too many lazy people. And sometimes I think, the ones that complain the most are the ones that don't vote. Errrr. Thanks on Cardiac Collage. I'm enjoying how it's coming together.

    1. Hi Sherry, thanks to you and your husband for getting out there and voting. Too many stay home and don't participate. Thanks for the visit, always nice to see you.

  5. Your blanket is nearly finished and it's looking great. I agree about voting, we should all use our vote, it's a privilege that was fought hard for.

  6. Cardiac Collage is coming along very nicely. It's fun to play with colors! I've always voted in person on the day. Never did the at home voting but I think I'd like it. :-) I'll have to check into that. Not sure how it's done here.
