Friday has finally arrived and the a little cold weather in New Jersey. We are expecting some rain/sleet/rain on Sunday which means going out on Saturday to run errands and perhaps getting in a movie. This Christmas is playing in theaters and it’s nice to see one new Christmas movie, although I have to say one of my favorite movies about the holiday is “A Christmas Story with Darren McGavin and Peter Billingsley. It is one of the funniest stories about a little boy’s repeated requests for a Red Ryder B-B gun, and it’s a story that does not have a perfect Christmas which makes really human. If you have never seen it, TBS will air the movie all the month of December or just rent it. I am going to attempt to get some sewing done this weekend and finish up a project, and get some reading in as well. I am currently reading the book Exposed in which
I mentioned in my blog earlier this week, and probably will finish it as it is not a long book, however, the book is eye-opening. Of course, I tend to get in some fiction by finishing The Jane Austen Book Club that started over a month ago and haven’t completed it yet. I haven’t started any knitting projects, but have yarn where I could make a few more scarves.I went the theater last night at Lincoln Theater which is an amazing performance venue to see Phylicia Rashad in Cymbeline. I though the play was good, but better in the second act whcih happened to be longer than first which is unusual for a play. However, I am talking about Shakespeare and his plays are generally long.
Some of you my know, that I am beginner sewer and admit that I do not have a serger just yet. Hopefully I will able to purchase one in the near future as I want to sew up some knit dresses and pieces to give it a more finished look to the garment. There are times when I ask myself to serge or not to serge. Some sewers say you do not need a serger, but others believe it is a necessity and I am still on the fence. I was thinking about purchasing a used serger, but it is just a mere thought and will make a decision in the next couple of months. Well Ithink that is what on my mind at the moment. Have a good weekend everyone!
