Wuthering Heights Read-Along

say what!Softdrink over at Fizzy Thoughts is hosting a read-long. and since i am between books. and have seen the movie like a million times. why not see if i can get through it. of course i don't have my book yet. so i'm going to the bookstore. and start my three chapter assignment tonight. if you linked over here from Fizzy Thoughts. i should warn you. since i am a slow reader. my list of books read is well shorter than yours. never done a read-along. and never ever attempted a review. so not exactly sure what i will do next Wednesday.

Jelly Roll Classic Sampler BOM

i am really picky with pre-cuts. much too much editing. use these. don't use those. so picky that i prefer to buy yardage. but i just couldn't make a jelly roll sampler from a popular jelly roll publisher without using a jelly roll(duh). thank goodness i found Whimsy. i love it 100%. and no surprise that i ordered it from Quilt Taffy.must mention the following. because who reads directions. don't you just jump right in there. only referring to instructions when you get confused. it is well written and clear that you need 1-1/2 strips for Colour B. that would be the blue polka dots. you could use a mixture of blues. or pick something that has 2 strips. but i was able to cut triangles instead of squares for the flying geese. AND steal a charm from my pack.

this is the Jelly Roll Classic Sampler BOM from The Quilt Room. the pdf files are no longer available from the website. but the pattern has been published in their new book. Jelly Roll Sampler Quilts.

Remember Me

by the time you read this i will be. or will already have been. watching an advance screening of a new match my disappointment in the postcard without the glossy picture on it. i am only showing you the uninteresting start of my new knitting. just brown for now. but the other colors are lovely. i'll come back tonight and at least let you know how the movie was.

~~loved the movie. and i went with a friend who is a huge fan of Twilight. ~~correction. huge fan of Robert P. ~~this was not a Twilight movie. ~~not making socks.
