I'd rather be cruising!

Three things to be happy about:
(1) your favorite old quilt
(2) an ample supply
(3) Andy Griffith show reruns

The arctic blast they promised really came through Monday night, like the Orient express!  Water main break at Reagan airport, cracked rail on the Metro system, electrical failure in at least one school, and the list goes on!  Yesterday morning I had frost on my storm windows, first time that's happened as far as I can remember.  I noticed it was only on the wall where I have a space heater though... maybe that triggered it?

Anyway we reached a high of 12 degrees, supposedly the highest temperature in this area.

I'd rather be cruising!!!  The Caribbean would feel mighty fine right now.

I keep telling myself "November and December went by like a flash, surely to goodness January and February will do the same thing," especially since February is a short month!

Yesterday I laid out another "10" block for the anniversary swap ... this one isn't fused down because I need to look at it for a bit longer.

This is my take on a recently released movie which I haven't seen (and don't intend to).

I'm thinking of making the movie "screen" a little taller ... maybe the border could be a wee bit narrower?  No, maybe not...

The family could be moved down a little more if the screen is taller.

The words don't need to be any larger... this block needs something else but I don't know what!  Any suggestions???

That's it for now, gotta dig through some more fabric!  Stay warm, sew forth and sew on til later  :o)


  1. Sorry, I can't help on the block. I agree that the Caribbean would be nice about now. Low today was supposed to be 31 - so why does my outdoor thermometer say 14? I feel cheated!Brrr!

  2. Hi Linda....I wouldn't go see the movie either, although my husband said it was well done. He told me how it ended for the man in real life I got really angry. Good thing I stayed home! Anyway, I go to the movies a lot, and I think if you make the screen bigger (taller) and then move your audience up a bit so their heads are 'in' the screen, it might say 'movie' a little bit more. BTW I'm loving your blocks.

  3. I agree with Marei--but I think I would also add curtains on either side like an old fashioned movie theater....
