Dreary day with a payoff!

Well, today I was a dark, rainy day that was not fit for much other than reading, cooking and sewing. My husband and I went out for a quick breakfast and then ran some errands. I stopped at the quilt shop and got a few things (only $25.00 spent!!) that I needed for a new quilt I am determined to make this vacation. I got the blocks all ready to be put together, so I am happy.

Since I am broke right now and am planning to pay off a few bills this year, I promised myself that I would not really buy any fabric, but that I would make quilts that could use up my stash. Not exactly a hardship since I have an attic full of fabric that is gorgeous and varied. I could quilt myself through a very long economic depression if I had to. Tomorrow I have to put a few pictures of the project I am doing on this blog so I can measure my progress day by day.

My kids got me some fabbo old movies for Christmas. My friend and I watched the 1949 version of "A Letter to Three Wives" last night. What a great story!! Today while I was ironing my quilt pieces, I watched "All About Eve" and that was excellent as well. I had not seen either in many years. What a great way to spend some time. The women sure were gorgeous during that time with that great hair and those clothes!! AND!!! they are all normal sized! People thought they were beautiful and sexy, and that still holds true for today, in my opinion. Who in the world ever thought that forcing yourself to be a size zero was gorgeous?
Anyway, I do not want to get crazed on that topic:) Being inside all day paid off in quilt blocks and classic movie watching. It doesn't get better than that.

I think that started in the 60s with Twiggy, and we've never recovered. I remember my mother telling me that size 12 was perfect, while I thought, as a teenager, that it was huge! Oh, to be a size 12 now. =)

You are funny! I think you must be right about the Twiggy influence. I was a kid then too. I like a little meat on a person, so I am not going to stress about the "chub" I carry around!
