I made "Sensational" right after "Bricks" back in 2002. It's pieced in a slightly different way than my other letter quilts are, but not so much so that you'd notice it right away. I loved the look and feel of this quilt so much that I made my recent bed quilt with the same colors and black letters. The words read: Sensational, Fantastic, marvelous, wonderful, incredible, magnicent.
I'm feeling guilty right now. I've been off having fun the last couple of days, not doing much sewing at all. Yesterday I went with some friends to the Bulaq fabric souk and bought some really hideous Halloween orange pharoanic fabric for 10 LE a meter (that's about $1.70 for more than a yard) as well as some gorgeous black fabric for making folk art cats. The souk was so hot and crowded I thought I might pass out. What a light weight I am.
In the afternoon we went to the Khan and visited Tentmakers' Street - that's where the traditional Egyptian applique is sold. I managed not to buy anything (you all know how strict I am about my colors) but my friends' wallets are worse for wear.
"Moonstruck" was on tv this afternoon. I truly love that movie. "I love you." "Snap out of it." Cher used to be such a beautiful woman and would have aged so well, but instead she went the Michael Jackson route and looks freakish. This has to be one of the few movies I can stand Nicolas Cage in. Can't even think of another one at the moment, but surely there has to be one more.
