Hey, I told ya'all I'd started a new quilt. Well this is it. Right now I'm making a little bit of this and a little bit of that, some of which may make it into the final quilt and some which undoubtedly won't. I'm playing.
The one certainty is the words. This is gonna be my "Terms of Endearment" quilt. I'm going to use all the various pet names my hubby and I have for each other and for our four-legged babies. Not going to use the ones that are plays on names like "Hocus Pocus" and "Lilypad" and I'm not going to fill it with generic terms that anybody and everybody uses. I want this quilt to be personal. Or should that be personalized? Whichever.
I did some more sewing today, but didn't get any more words or asterisks finished. Spent way too much time internetting. This is my third entry of the day, by golly. Still, I have to tell ya'all, I love answering questions and seeing people try the letters, try the fans. I've updated the links in my sidebar to take you to the tutorials I've done. All of it is adapted from what I've posted on the blog. Please check it out and ask questions, make suggestions...
Life overseas: hurrah, we finally have Diet Doctor Pepper back in stock at the commissary after a 6-month absence. AND it tastes better than it did before (was too metallic - think it had been sitting around for years in a storage depot somewhere). I'm limiting myself to one can a day cuz I know it's not good for me. And they're gonna run out again almost immediately so I'd better pace myself. I was drinking something like 4 liters a day of it in the states. I know, stooopid.
And where the heck is my "Charmed?" Showtime put it on every weekday for a week, then it's gone, then it's back, and now it's gone again. Argh. Plus they're showing the half hour Aussie soap "Home and Away" so it completely throws the schedule off for part of the day and makes the shows start on the half hour instead of the hour. And tell me why we need all these garbage anyway? "Young and the Restless" and, even worse, Maury Povitch... What impression does this give to the rest of the world about Americans?
