Don't Tell Anyone


Don't tell anyone, but I'm sort of caught up on all the pre-Quilt Market frenzy.  It's probably because we won't be having our "own" booth this market, but a shared booth with some other Moda designers.  If you read blogs (quilt and fabric blogs particularly) with your morning coffee like I do.  The one overwhelming theme currently is the hurried frenzy to get to Kansas City.  We are waiting for 2 more quilts to get back from Kari our long arm quilter that we need to put the binding on.  That's it.  That sound you hear is the cursing of all the other quilt and fabric bloggers who don't have their stuff done.  Sorry.  Besides the booth issue - which takes a whole lot off the "to-do" list, we got our fabric a little early.  So, no harried, hurried, screams coming from me.  What am I doing?  Working on a a Christmas quilt.   

Seriously, I should be banned from having a blog.  It's hard to say what's more boring - this picture or the fact that the only thing I can report is that my work is all done.  This is just lame.

What else?  While the stitching was being done and some quilts were being planned Bill and I raided the Ann Arbor District Library for any and all British detective DVDs.  We are hooked.  Some of the ones we have watched and enjoyed: Vera, Single Handed, Luther, Life On Mars, George Gently, MI-5 and some non detective stuff like Doc Martin.  Nothing like a good mystery, and the Brits do it as good as anyone.  That reminds me - SHERLOCK season II starts Sunday!  The game is afoot!

I've watched Waking the Dead and Wire in the Blood and a few more British Crime shows on Netflix. I'm going to have to add yours to my list. Does it seem to you that British writers are more "fresh" in their writing than American? I swear, I see the same plots on Law and Order, NCIS, etc.

Have you seen the Inspector Morse shows? They take place in Oxford. There is a newer spin-off off called Lewis that is good too.

Congratulations on being ready! Thanks for the heads-up on Sherlock Holmes - I second your take on great British mystery TV series and movies.

I love hearing that someone is ready for whatever it is! I'm a last minute Luci and have no idea what that feels like!! Enjoy the moment!!!!!!!

Brit TV drama, detective/crime and thriller programmes are just the best, although I did enjoy The Wire. It makes a change seeing real looking people instead of absurdly good looking men and women.

I love the new Sherlock Holmes. It's like watching the series "Monk" only he's a genius/savant.

I'm actually a little bit done as well. Of course I have a good excuse, no actual fabric, but I had to make some old pkm stuff and do a ton of digital work. But still. Phew.
Never stops me from being boring! YAY SHERLOCK. Now off for a ride to see the SUPERMOON and have a soft serve cone.

How funny! I just set up the DVR to record Sherlock yesterday! We do think alike! From now on if you recommend something, I'm just going to assume I'll love it.

I think you would enjoy "Foyle's War". It's during the Battle of Britain and I think you would appreciate the attention to the time period. One of my favs!

Congrats on being ahead of the game so to speak! Please show us a picture of your quilt when you get the top done. and no your blog is not boring. I love to read about the dogs, recipes, trips to the farmer's market etc. This is what makes the quilt and fabric designers seem more real to those of us in different locations!

MARCIE said...

Oh my gosh, did you love Sherlock? And thanks for the names of those other British shows. Some are unfamiliar to me, but Doc Martin is a favorite! Very exiting about the Quiltmania photo shoot! I won't be at market and will miss seeing your stuff and all the rest. have fun!
