I didn't go out to Target for the midnight release. I wanted to, but I let my issues get in the way. I didn't want to go by myself across town and have to be in a group of people or waiting outside in cold temps for any length of time. The crazy thing is that I spent money so that I wouldn't have a choice not to go out. I didn't spend it on anything that silly, but on stuff that could have waited. I bought a couple of FQs yesterday at my favorite fabric resale shop that I needed, but could have waited on or made do without, for the quilt I'm working on. I got a latte out this morning. I stopped at the grocery store this morning, too, and bought a frozen dinner for lunch, that I ended up not having time to eat....as usual, and that's why I don't bother with lunch even at my desk. I spend just enough money to not have enough to buy the movie.
Yeppers....crazy is as crazy does.
I knew the clip would pop up somewhere. It did, but I pretty much just got the visual as the audio wasn't good enough for me to decipher hardly any of the actual dialogue. Hopefully, a better offering will become available. I read today that the Breaking Dawn Part 2 trailer will be showed with Hunger Games. Yay! Vampire Bella looks stunning and I enjoyed the bit of a kiss.....sigh....
I finished the rest of Chapter 1 of the EQ6 Applique Drawing book with confidence tonight while stalking the 'Net for news and personal accounts!
I meant to mention this tip in my previous post....I'm not inventing the wheel or anything.
I took my EQ6 Applique Drawing book to FedEx Kinkos and had the binding removed and replaced with plastic coil--you know, the type on spiral notebooks. (link) I also had plastic sheets to protect the book covers added. It cost me about $7.50 because I was undercharged--the book is an odd size so I should have been charged more. A regular-sized book will cost you around $8.00 for the services, but it's well worth it. I don't have all my quilting books done, but I love to do it for any books, like applique or paper piecing books, that I need to copy patterns out of. There's nothing more frustrating than fighting with a book by hand or in a copy machine, trying to flatten it enough to get all the pattern copied without distortion, or fighting to keep a book open while working on a lesson.
The book is opened expertly to the page I need and rests flatly next to my keyboard so I can focus on the lesson.
FedEx Kinkos is a wonderful place. I also like to go there to print oversized patterns onto single, large sheets of paper when needed. I even get help all the time to do these things without any fuss. Nice!
