Some Quilting Time

My mom left to go home last night.  We had a marvelous time together. (as we always do).  And we got so much done.  (Which is impressive as we had my niece and nephew as well so there were 7 kids to keep happy).  My yard looks like it has gone through a virtual transformation, I finally have living room curtains, and my entire house has had a super cleaning.  But with all of that . . .  Sadly, there was no time left for quilting.

After my mom left I found myself standing in my living room with nothing to do.  My husband had taken the 3 older kids up the mountain for the night and day and the 2 younger ones were sleeping soundly.  So, after taking a moment to enjoy the silence,  I decided to turn this on


And enjoy some prime chick flick time while pinning these together.


Ahhh, a little slice of heaven!!  Now this morning, I am ready to get piecing :)   I am so looking forward to it!!


Pin It!

  3. I love, love, love that mini-series. Colin Firth is hands-down the best Mr. Darcy.

  8. Just to clarify: Is it the quilting that is a slice of heaven? Or...Mr. Darcy??? (favorite movie ever!) Have fun!

  9. Just the cover is a slice of heaven! I'd have to put the pins down - I wouldn't be paying attention enough to not stick myself repeatedly.

  11. Ahhh, that movie is one of my weaknesses too! Great choice ;) I am reading the novel yet again on my Kindle, have lost track of how many times I've done either.

  13. I love that version of Pride and Prejudice. I've watched it several times, plus the newer version as well. AND read the book TWICE :-)

  14. The Colin Firth version has got to be the BEST version. I just downloaded the book on my Kindle, can't wait to read it. I see some "Tetris" fabric cutting and P&P in my future!!

  15. I've got that very DVD set in my sewing room right now, waiting for my next all-day sew in. Nothing better than Mr. Darcy keeping you company while you quilt! :D

  16. It sounds so nice to have an angel to sort out the garden and clean the house. Mr Darcy is enjoyable too. :-)

  17. I love this version! I first saw it in college and watched when I probably should have been doing something else. I keep trying to get my hubby to watch it with me on Netflix but so far it's a no go. Maybe I'll have to break it out when he's working late.
