First, there is a commercial for cinnamon rolls--the lady is making 5 rolls--for 6 people! And none are being cut in half for the kids! What gives with that?
Then there is the toothpaste commercial where the spokesperson does not seem to realize that there are two Ts in dentist. She pronounces it "denist".
Can we say "too loud" when we can hear the music coming from earbuds on a pizza roll commercial?
Something I'm grateful for? That the yogurt commercial with a "supermodel" is no longer being aired. Could that have been more disgusting? And we wonder why kids act the way they do.
I do love the new Fancy Feast commercials with the white kitten! And the new show "Mike and Molly". "Blue Bloods". And that guilty pleasure "Glee".
That's it for this Monday evening.
I admit it...I'm a point and shoot kind of photographer. Unfortunately, I don't seem to do all that well with stationary subjects, much less anything that moves! But a couple weeks ago I caught this photo. Two full sisters circling--and all their feet are in exactly the same position. Seriously, I couldn't have planned that.
Happy Monday, everyone!

I think he has been there before--see all the divots in the tree?

Happy Thursday! No matter what the weather is, it has to be better than this!

Did a bit of horsing around, a bit of knitting--only two rows til I have the increases done and can start the body! Put many of my quilts away--they have been out and about for several weeks and know they get a chance to stretch out and rest. Lynnie breathed a sigh of relief to see the giant suitcase return to the closet.
And now it is blogging and then bed. For those of you who keep track of such things, yes, I am posting a bit earlier than usual ;-)
P.S. Yes, Rose, I am still quilting on the mystery quilt. The outlining is done and I have finally decided what I want for the background quilting. It will be worth the wait!

Here's a close-up of one of the blocks. Stunning, Bettina! Thanks for sharing!
This is Sue Y.'s rendition of Monthly Bliss 1, another hand piecing series. Sue had her quilt professionally longarmed and the designs chosen truly complemented the top.
Those of you who are long-term readers of the blog may remember other quilts from all three ladies. You can see them again by choosing the "quilting" or "students" category in the left hand column.
Thank you, Bettina, Lori and Sue for sharing your works of art. All three are in a long-term applique class with me now--and their blocks are striking. I'll share more as we go along. All these classes were held at O'Susannah's in Watkins Glen.
That's it for tonight! Thanks for tuning in. Happy Monday, everyone!
P.S. I am listening to Indulgence in Death by J.D. Robb. Love the entire series.

It's been a really good day here--a lot of basting (quilt sandwiches for a class), good friends, horses (it was like herding cats!), and a spot of knitting. Hopefully I can remember to get a picture of my ever-increasing sweater soon. I am almost to the end of the increases! I just love the yarn.
Hope none of you were seriously fooled by anyone/anything today. I'm always glad when I can escape unscathed!
More tomorrow! Happy Saturday, everyone!
