I'm working on the Hardanger band of Time Well Spent.
It always seems to take forever to do Kloster blocks.
Of course, my friends who do more Hardanger than I do typically work in hand and sew their Klosters in. If I do that, mine are tight and look like pulled thread, so I frame everything up and stab. And stab. And stab. And stab. I feel like I've been stabbing all week-end.
Except I haven't. Baby Girl came home so that Dearly Beloved could take her car in for an inspection and any necessary work (which resulted in Dearly Beloved buying her four new tires). She and I went to the farmers' market on Saturday morning, had lunch at our favorite Japanese restaurant, and went to see Dark Shadows. We both wanted to see it--she because of the trailers and I because I loved the original soap opera years and years ago.
About Dark Shadows, I will say this. I will never recover those 113 minutes. If given options, I would suggest taking the money and going to see The Avengers, even if you've already seen it. Even if you have already seen it three times.
Actually, my marathon in the dentist's chair on Thursday afternoon was more pleasant, even though it lasted over twice as long as Dark Shadows.
