Finding God in “New Moon”

Do you remember when that series of books came out?  “Finding God in ‘Harry Potter'”; “Finding God in ‘The Lord of the Rings'”.  I never actually read any of them, and I don’t think I’m going to be writing one any time soon, but I did have kind of a God moment when I went to see “New Moon” Saturday night.

No boy/vampire/werewolf will ever be there 100% of the time.  No matter what he promises, he will let you down.  There’s only one who will always be there, who will always protect you(me), who will always keep his promises–Jesus.

That’s all (shortest “Finding God…” book ever).  So obvious, can’t believe it took a $9 vampire movie to remind me. 

And on a semi-related note, please pray for Liz today!

If my life was a Nora Ephron movie, it would have a really great soundtrack.

If you know me at all, you probably know that my very most favorite movie is “You’ve Got Mail”.  I love Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks, her hair, the music, her BOOKSHOP, HER APARTMENT!!  Ackk!!   

So I made a quilt inspired by the quilt on her bed in that movie.

It’s a smallish, lap quilt sized throw based on this triangle tutorial from the Purl Bee, made up in sweet pinks and yellows alternating with linen.  I absolutely love it!  I am very haphazard, non-Type-A when it comes to sewing, so not all of those little corners match up, but it’s pretty and warm and I don’t care.

I also finished an UFO:

My beloved yo-yo pillow!  From this Design*Sponge tutorial..For this project I expanded my color selection to include my favorite light turquoise-y blues and sea greens.  I think project is the epitome of the “granny chic” style.  It just makes me so happy!  I love that all the little scrappy yo-yo’s pull together fabrics and colors from my other quilts and projects.  Also, I cannot cry when I am looking at this pillow, so it’s good for my emotional health, as well.  Here’s a picture of the back:

That stripey green on the top there is the backing of my “You’ve Got Mail” quilt.  It’s got little pink dots that pull it together, but still–lots of contrast.

Speaking of Nora Ephron, I managed to make it to “Julie and Julia” the last weekend it was in theaters around here–SO good!  It made me want to cook, which I did, with not a lot of success, later that same weekend.

This weekend, I have been super inspired (and distracted from productivity) by looking at this lady’s lovely quilts.  It makes me want to sew!

Why can’t I watch/read something that makes me want to study?
