We are just back from an evening out ---we spent New Year’s Eve at the movies with the DH’s brother and his wife, and I have to say that “Saving Mr Banks” is the BEST movie I’ve seen in years.
Just go see it. If you grew up in the 50s and 60s you will so relate to the making of Mary Poppins.
Even if you were born later –our son Jeff went through TWO video tapes of Mary Poppins – when he was little it was his go-to movie of choice, and at all hours of the day he’d be seen practicing “Step in Time” with the fireplace broom all around the house like one of the chimney sweeps in the movie. Cutest thing ever – And gosh, I hope he never reads this post or he will kill me.
Just go see it!
Now that we are back to our room, I set right down to do the drawing for Lucie Summers’ Quilt Improv.
450 comments! It seems to be a book that you are going to want to save a space for on your shelves!
Drumroll please…the random number generator says:
And number 114 is…….MARY W in Boston!!
Mary, I’ve sent you an email --- get back to me with your snail mail address and I’ll pass it on to the publisher who will package that book up and get it sent right to your doorstep.
Thanks for playing along everybody!
I don’t know how the rest of you will be spending your New Year’s Eve, but here in Texas we’ve got a couple hours to go before midnight.
Yesterday Miss Allison brought her sweet Belaire 301 for me to sew on while at the hotel:
With notes, accessories, baggies of fabric scraps & everything!
This is so clever!
Use a bread tab to identify random cords! The 301’s cords completely detach from the machine, and this is a great way to keep them identified!
Crumbs to play with!
Pieces and parts to the ready…..all on the tray the hotel ice bucket USUALLY resides on, but I have a better use for it…containing my MESS on the desktop!
This is where you will find me…paper piecing in the crumbs while I ring out 2013 and ring in 2014!
Happy New Year, Everyone –let 2014 be the BEST ONE YET!
