Well, Darla's shipping out already and I'm thrilled that a few wonderful crafters have actually made things with her already! Amazing! But wanted to let you know about this giveaway of Darla fat quarters over at Quilt Taffy
She asked people to say what they'd make with Darla and I have to admit I'm having too much fun reading the comments. I've been thinking that Darla really represents hominess and domesticity to me and apparently she is for others as well as aprons, kitchen stuff and table cloths seem to be coming up alot! Just what I want to make from Darla...
But, in case you don't win, here are some stores that already have Darla in stock.
Hancocks of Paducah (they carry my fabrics and patterns and so many more!!!)
Fabritopia (thank you Jona!)
I also have to make a couple of movie suggestions for anyone who's gonna have just a tinsy bit of time to kick back and watch a movie over the holiday break. I've been taken it real easy just lately, I needed it and thanks to a great friend who helped me to realize that, it really is ok to take it easy! (you know who you are, thank you, thank you!!) I've been kickin back and enjoying the moment a bit more.
Part of taking it easy has meant watching Netflix movies while folding laundry, very slowly. Usually I barely fold and just try to get clean laundry into the drawers as quickly as possible. So, I watched 2 Days in Paris with my husband and we both loved it!! It reminded me of the Woody Allen films I grew up watching and loving, my husband does not share my love of Woody Allen movies but he really liked this film. Funny, sweet, authentic movie about relationships and about being an American in a foreign land.
The other movie I really liked was A Good Year
Not exactly a great movie but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I don't know but I just think Ridley Scott has such a gift for achieving the look of a movie and setting a mood. It's really beautiful, set in a Provencal chateau, I pretty much could have watched it with the sound off.
Anyway, I don't want to get all Oprah on you but, I forget to enjoy the little moments that make life so sweet, been doing more of it lately and it just feels really good. Who knows, maybe I'll even knit a scarf.
Wishing you a sweet moment of your own! and a Merry Christmas!
