7:48 Wolverine

Well, I guess Minick and Simpson aren't the only people who appreciate Mr. Colin Firth. Good to know. That movie is everything you have heard it to be - and more. Make sure to see it! Polly and Tom saw it yesterday and they loved it as much as Bill and I did. Superbly done and fascinating. And, if you obsess about movie sets and costumes like I do - it's worth it for that alone. And don't forget the wallpaper!! Oh, the British and their obsession with over-the-top wallpaper. It makes me very happy to see such attention to detail in the sets.I had a jam packed day yesterday and today, for that matter. After unpacking the car of 6 suitcases of quilts, I get to repack an overnight bag because at 7:48 tomorrow morning, myself and several Minicks will be going here.Polly, myself, and 2 of her granddaughters are going to Chicago on the train. The train is a great way to get to, and to get around in Chicago. It will be a short, fun filled trip. Shopping, dining and especially this.An all girls weekend in the Windy City. We are making sure to have sweaters, hats, scarves, and lip balm.

We'll be back to our regular scheduled programming of quilts and rugs next week. Bye!

How fun, this show is on our list of possibilities while in NYC in March. But the list is long and the time is short. Have a great trip!
