I pulled out some of the thrifted men's shirt stash to make this quilt. So far, I've gotten the pieces from the light shirts cut out.
Somewhere along the way, I got an ear worm of lyric from an old Jethro Tull song, which seemed apropos. Of course, then I had to go listen to the whole song, because the guitar (and melody) is sweet.
"Skating away...skating away...skating away on the thin ice of a new day..."
As far as the sewing mojo goes, sometimes you've got to slide back into it sideways, I think.

Having several days off in a row for the holidays, we managed to watch quite a few movies, including Premium Rush (fair to good), The Avengers (I'm not big on comic book heroes and over-the-top action, so for me it was just okay), Lawless (surprisingly good), and Catfish (wow, what a strange twist; but Nev Schulman is adorable).
But last night we watched the best one of all, Pitch Perfect. I laughed out loud a lot, and pretty much any time "Fat Amy" (Rebel Wilson) said anything. Funny, and entertaining with the singing/musical aspect of it.

I'm looking forward to experimenting with some improvisational-type fabric play in the New Year.
