A New X-Blocks Quilt & a Sadly Serious Serial Television Addiction
It all began innocently enough and it happened so fast. I didn’t realize it could get so far out of control, so fast. You see, I hadn’t seen “real” television in so long, we only had ABC, NBC, PBS and FOX. We could watch CBS sometimes, but only on a really clear day, and never at night.
Then satellite television came into my life, satellite TV with a DVR. I didn’t even know what DVR was, but I said, “Yes! Yes! YES!” And when I found out that I could record every “Boston Legal” episode (a previously snowy CBS show) and watch it at my leisure—well, suffice to say, I was in heaven! (I love James Spader’s character so much, I have no idea why, I just DO.)
Big Man groused about my new addiction. “Why do you have to download every episode? You’re using up all the space!!”
That’s when I introduced him to “Desperate Housewives”. I know it was evil of me to drag him into my sad, serial addiction, but what can I say? I’m an addict!
And now it’s “West Wing”. Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night a “new” episode. I only have *sob* 15 episodes left. In a panic I set the DVR to download every episode of “Bones”.
That put Big Man through the roof, sent him over the edge, he’s on “TILT”.
And now he’s signed me up for NetFlicks – though first he made me promise that I wouldn’t download any more television series onto the DVR and I wouldn’t hog all the DVDs in the queue.
Do you think that 15 DVDs in the queue is too many? (I’m a bull kid in a candy necklace shop, I tell ya I can’t be trusted!)
Another Class Sample: X-Blocks Table Runner
I made this table runner using the 7.5″ X-Blocks template (I used the Mini 7.5″ template in the other two table toppers). I can’t seem to get a good picture, so you’ll just have to trust me that it looks better in person – or you could go see it in Quilter’s Junction next week. :O)
Attach a tassle on each point and this 52″ x 19.5″ piece would be perfect as a bed scarf on a twin-sized bed.
