Tonight I took Makayla to see the "Bee Movie" after we dropped Amber off at work, and before we had to pick her up again. (I'm so out of it that when they told me the name of the movie I thought they said it was a B movie. Do they still use this term in the 21st Century?) This is a fun movie; not only is it cute and funny but the use of the hexagon hive motif fascinated me. I might have to do a lot more hexagon quilts before I'm tired of these pattern possibilities. Does this mean I've been hexed? Maybe I could try adding hex signs to the hexagons. Oh well, it's late, I'm sleepy and getting silly.
Look at the great pattern I got in the mail today. When I saw this on Sew Momma Sew I was so excited because I am a bookworm
and it is getting harder and harder for me to hold books while reading. I've switched to paperbacks as often as possible for several years because they were easier to hold, but now even paperbacks are getting painful. This looks like the perfect solution to my problem because it holds the book on the lap and holds the pages open. Now if I can figure out how to use it while reading in bed; maybe Joe can invent something that would hold it at the right angle since it wouldn't work on the lap while reclining.
