She’s not old, we’ve just been friends a long time.
Going on 30 years!
(Yes, we were very small when we were first introduced.)
We also lived in London together as students.
Which was probably one of the funnest things I’ve ever done. And so, how could I not give her her very own Union Jack pillow just to relive all the great memories of monuments visited, West End musicals sung-along-with, and Hobnobs consumed?
I am making good progress on my blocks for my quilt too! About half-way there. I’m in love with each block. I have loved pulling out lots of “I’ll-use-this-fabric-someday-on-the-perfect-project” fabrics from the stash. But as I step back, I think I need to throw in some more bigger-scale prints. What I really need is a good English-garden, Cath Kidston-ish, vintage-looking cabbage rose. It’s kind of hard to find those prints right now. I may have to dig through my mom’s stash too. 🙂
And speaking of the British Isles: another quote from the outspoken-8-year-old.
I found a copy of Brigadoon on DVD at the library and brought it home for a bit of reliving childhood nostalgia. (Not as great as I remembered it, but anything with Gene Kelley is easy on the eyes.) Anyway I talked my daughter into watching it with me. Her first comment on the Scottish accents: “Are they speaking Korean or do they just have retainers in their mouths?”
PS. Thanks so much for the great info on washing quilts and fabric!! Lots of good tips if you haven’t read them.
