Like most of you, I suppose, I have a few dirty little secrets. (I’ll bet that got your attention!) Mine are pretty tame, but still, I hang my head in shame.
For starters, I have several dirty little literary secrets. MeMum and BigDaddy gave me a beautiful copy of Jane Eyre when I was a teenager, and even though I read a lot back then, I never managed to get it read. (Hasn’t everyone read Jane Eyre?)
In anticipation of the movie, I finished the book this week, and, of course, I loved it. It was fun to read my childhood version of the book too, as it’s full of pretty little pen and ink illustrations.
The illustration below is probably my favorite. I can’t wait to see the movie now. Have any of you seen it yet? I’m a little distressed — it won’t open here until the day I leave for spring market — I’m crossing my fingers that it will stay around for more than 10 days.
Another dirty little secret is one that I KNOW I share with many of you. Really old UFOs. Now that I’ve finished the crochet bag, I need some sort of handwork and I decided I really should try to work on a UFO. I’ve resurrected one from the early 90′s. (Ouch!) I was farther along than I thought though — two out of four borders are all appliqued — just two more to go and I’ll be finished. Why do we put these projects down when we don’t really have that much left to do on them? I have a plan this time, so I’m going to git ‘er done.
That’s enough for dirty little secrets tonight — I hope your dirty little secrets are more exciting!
To change the subject, I had a super fun encounter today at lunch. I ran to JoAnn’s to see if I could get the new Denyse Schmidt fabrics for Julia. When I asked about them, the clerk pointed to the back of the store and said they were all mixed in along the back wall. Really??? Arghh. There’s no way I can pick them all out — I barely know what they look like! Luckily, there was another clerk in the quilting section and she hadn’t put them out yet — they were all still together and wrapped in shrink wrap. Happy Dance about Perfect Timing.
And if that weren’t enough, as I was picking through them, this cutie with a little boy and girl walked up and asked for the same fabrics. I took one look at her, laughed, and said “Are you Jenny?” Poor Jenny, I think I shocked her, but what a wonderful surprise! Jenny and I have e-mailed and shared comments for a few years but never met. I think maybe we were both a bit too shy (stop laughing!) to suggest a get-together. I knew one day we would meet and always wondered how it would happen. So, Hi Jenny — I LOVED our chance encounter — it was the highlight of my day week! I hope your novocaine has worn off LOL!
I hope you all have a fun weekend. Maybe you’ll have a chance encounter too!
