iPhone-o-Gram! Movie Time!

Every year we MUST watch a certain string of movies--

And this afternoon that string began!

It started out with Holiday Inn--how many of you stop a video to capture a better view of a quilt?

It's black and white, but I can tell its a tied one--goose & goslings, maybe??

It's after dinner time now and we are just settling in to White Christmas!

Feet up in the recliner---binding in progress while we sing along and recite the lines we've memorized over the years.

This is Christmas tradition at its best!

Tomorrow morning---don't forget Mystery Monday Link-Up! I'm eager to see how you've done on part 4!

what do you do with a general... when he stops being a general.. oh what do you do with a general who retires????? (watched that one too many times)

We watched White Christmas this afternoon, too. Love that movie! Though I was cooking dinner through most of it. I like your way of watching it better.

Too funny! *I* have a pause button and watched it last week (and played it back about 10 times. Why don't they have a "zoom" feature? *sigh*) I think it's Old Maid's Puzzle and definitely sashed & tied. So...what color(s) do you think it is :-)

White Christmas is my absolute favorite. Rosemary Clooney's voice is like velvet, and I can't get over Vera Ellen's dancing.....and her waist!!! Cripes! That's tiny!!! lol Enjoy your movies and binding!

I love all those old movies... but it's football time tonight!

My mother went to Smith, and we love the line when Bing is complaining about the airheads Danny Kaye introduces him to, and Danny Kaye says "So she didn't go to college, so she didn't go to Smith!"

While watching the sequel to Anne of Green Gables, Anne was walking through a French train station. The shot was from above and the floor tiles were fabulous...I paused the movie, took a picture of the screen and designed it on EQ while watching the remainder of the movie....now that is addicted to quilting!! Enjoy your 'seasonal traditions'!!

Holiday Inn is my all time favorite Christmas movie. My daughter has hidden the DVD

Always looking for quilts in movies and shows. It is interesting to see some that seem to have patterns or fabric far in the future from the timeline of the movie or show.

Ooh, I'm jealous - I love "Holiday Inn" but it is almost never on TV. I need to buy that movie before next Christmas. And yes, I am always on the lookout for quilts in movies and TV. Does anyone remember the program "The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd" and the quilt hanging on the wall behind her bed? I had to videotape that show so I could get a good look at the quilt.

I've watched both of those, and then last night it was "Christmas in Connecticut"--the old b&w version. Funny, I haven't noticed if there were quilts in that one. I usually look for those. Maybe I will have to replay it. : )

It won't be long before we'll all be there with snow
I want to wash my hands, my face and hair with snow
I long to clear a path and lift a spade of snow
Oh, to see a great big man entirely made of snow

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE White Christmas!

I have done that...stopping a DVD to see a sewing machine or a quilt. Little Women has many great quilts in it and Janet Leigh is using a hand crank sewing machine in the movie. I know I blogged about it eons ago.
I am pacing. I want to sew but I need to wrap gifts. I do have them all in boxes with tissue paper and the names on the bottom. That way I can assembly line wrap them. But I want to sew!!!!

Josie McRazie said...

Don't forget about Its a Wonderful Life! That is my gift wrapping movie! I wad a good girl this year and Santa is getting me Holiday Inn! ;0) Still looking for White Christmas! Maybe next year!

Janet said...

Two of my favorites. We used to joke that you couldn't live in our house if you couldn't recite and sing the entire White Christmas movie. Hope you enjoyed your evening!

Chip E. Nell said...

Those are big favorites here too...but the season officially begins on Thanksgiving evening when everyone watches The Waltons: The Homecoming. I am an official It's a Wonderful Life junkie.
