I missed doing a Sunday Sundry post, so it's Monday Miscellany instead.
|Found a plant for the vintage Shawnee planter.|
We spent yesterday celebrating Father's Day and our 29th anniversary. Got to visit a bit with our daughter, which was lovely, and then went to a movie, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. I really enjoyed it. Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, and an all-around stellar cast made for a great film.
|We'll have to see how this works out.|
Now that the baby quilt is done, it's time to get cracking on the string ring quilt again. I was originally going to use red centers for the scrappy Dresdens, but then I had an idea to try a black and white polka dot instead.
I liked it, but I sought the opinions of my daughter and husband, who both preferred the red. Not what I wanted to hear, but I appreciated their input. My daughter thought the black centers looked too much like pupils and crazy irises. I hadn't thought of that. Who wants to look at a quilt that looks back at you, creepily?
So I came up with a compromise, which got a thumbs up from Norm, and tonight I did some fusing while a Lifetime movie played in the background.
I mostly ignored the movie, but now and then I'd pay attention to the dialog. I think I may have lost a few IQ points in the process.
Reading the newspaper at lunch today, I had a good chuckle over this headline:
Eh, live and let live, I say. Let a cougar enjoy those perimenopausal years however she likes. If she can parlay her 40s for a couple of 20s, more power to her! ;)
