Weekly Wrap Up

Well, I have nearly made it through the week without the kids.  I was hard the first night.  Really missed them to bits.  But we made it through and managed a dinner out one night and a movie last night.  We saw The Internship, and we literally laughed out loud in some spots.  That’s unusual for me, but I think I’m at just the right age and generation to feel the humor in this movie.  But I like these kind of comedies.  Vince Vaughan kept saying “On the line” instead of “Online” – it was funny, … really.

I have also decided to start a new series that I never watched when it was in its prime.  If you recall, I got hooked on LOST and I did complete the entire series.  I don’t know how I would have made it through some of those seasons having to wait a week to get to the next scenarios.  It was really good.  Not sure about the ending – probably over thinking it.  I particularly liked SAWYER (played by Josh Holloway)- too bad it wasn’t on HBO, probably would have seen ‘more’ of him.

 

Now, though – I am getting into ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT.  I really like Jason Bateman humor also.  Dry wit and sarcasm.  Perfect for me.  I’m still in Season 1.  I’m not into it as much as LOST and giving up hours of sleep to see the next episodes.  Just catching it when I can on Netflix.  Perfect for lunch breaks at the office desk.  They are coming back to do another season, but this time it will be EXCLUSIVELY on Netflix.  Got to get caught up first.

 

Finally – I will say that I am absolutely, positively finished with the Swoon quilt top.  No.. you can’t see another picture.  I know you want to, but you can’t.  I am so flaky.  I kept wanting to wrap it up and move on, but I couldn’t.  Not until I was satisfied.  Now I’m satisfied.  It will be in the mail to LiMa Sews on Saturday morning.  DONE!  I’m so excited, I may throw in another quilt top and get it done at the same time.  Nora is due her own quilt finally, and I bequeathed her the 2011 FQS DM BOM quilt.  Perfect for my pink princess.

Nora Quilt in Progress

Did you get to take advantage of Fat Quarter Shops awesome sale this past weekend?  They cut prices on patterns, books, and precuts.  I couldn’t pass up some patterns at half off.

Pattern Group Purchase

I always love the look of Planted Seed Designs, but the Perkins pattern is really speaking to me right now.

Pattern Set 1

And, with AYOS – there’s a pretty good chance I’ll need these Schnibble patterns that I didn’t already own.  If not – they were on my list to get anyway.

Pattern Set 2

DULCINEA is the AYOS pattern for June.  I still haven’t started, but with Swoon done now – I can get into it this weekend!

Hope you have great expectations for this coming weekend as well!  Thanks for visiting today!

  1. Do you have the collection for a cause Traditions? If so, can you tell me if it came in a box or some type of container? This is the only collection I have not seen as a kit.

    • Hi Karen!
      I don’t even have a clue right now which box this is in at home … but from my notes I think it was a Moda U kit that just came with the fabric and pattern, no special box like the others. I’m pretty certain I got it off eBay.
