Like everywhere else in the U.S. there are political campaigns in full swing here. While downtown today I saw (and heard!) about 4 different vehicles equipped with big loud speakers on the roof, playing campaign songs for different candidates. These songs usually have a calypso beat and steel drum accompaniment. I followed this one nearly all the way back to the campus. Please note that I was stopped at a light when I took the picture.
Now on a different note . . .
I brought some handwork to do. I made a couple of small, simple flannel baby blankets and brought them along to add some stitching to the edges. I finished the first one quickly with a simple blanket stitch. I decided the try something a little fancier for the second one. (Isn't that frog fabric cute?) I did more than one side and found the size of the stitches was hard to keep uniform. I finally hit on the idea of folding a piece of paper to the depth I wanted the stitches to be. Then I laid the paper along the edge of the blanket and stitched over it, moving it along as I went. Boy, did that work well. The stitching went much faster and the result is much more uniform. Just thought I'd pass that tip along.
And, those baby blankets? Oh yes, I'm going to be a grandmother!
