I did a little something different today for my art. I took a break from it. I went to a movie, at the theater. Haven’t been in ages. This does not mean that I won’t work on something later, but for now, I just let my mind go and experienced something through someone else. Kind of an artist’s date, with my husband.
I went to see The Blind Side. I can’t begin to tell you how much I loved this movie! It was funny. It was heartwarming. It made me want to meet the people it was based on because it was indeed based on real people and a true story. It made me want to be a better person. I can’t remember the last movie that made me feel that! I puddled up a time or two, but I don’t think everyone would. Even though my hubby classified it as a “chick flick” he liked it too. I found great pleasure in that fact and since he laughed many times out loud, he could not deny that he liked it.
After the movie, we went to the grocery store together. I hate to grocery shop, but it’s much more enjoyable with a companion. I tried to get the things we would need through Thanksgiving. I truly hate to shop with huge crowds. I got my fill of that during our military days when the commissary was always packed. Anyway, one of the things I got was low fat crunchy peanut butter. I prefer the lower fat to the regular and we were out of crunchy. I splurged on croissants too. When I got home, I decided to make a peanut butter sandwich on a croissant. I thought it was great and a bit artful. My hubby thought I was slightly insane.
Tomorrow, I’ll be going to Dallas to Quilter’s Connection for a miniature class. It’s more of a sit and sew that costs us $10 a month. We’ve been together forever and basically work on our own projects now. I’ll take both of my quilts that I’ve shown you all recently. If I’m lucky enough to finish “Happy”, I’ll start quilting on the pecan quilt. I’ll show photos when I return.
Later: I’ve been looking through bags of fabric and projects for things to take with me tomorrow. I found 5 completed miniature pineapple blocks. I remember that I did not have enough of the fabric to use the primary fabric in the other 4 blocks I wanted to make. I have fabric that I could use for whole cloth blocks or maybe I could do something else. Regardless, I’m excited about that project again. It’s going with me and you’ll be seeing it soon.
