Is there anyone quite like JRR Tolkien? Oh, I wish I had his diction! The Wellington premiere of the Hobbit happened last night, pretty cool stuff. I can't imagine anyone doing it better than Peter Jackson, though he does have a free hand with the screenplay, I am afraid. But I am enough of a realist to realize that what works in a book wouldn't work on the big screen. Not in a direct translation anyway. Still, the books are such gold, it would be hard for the films to live up to the potential. I think PJ did pretty darn well in LOTR, and figure he will do even better in Hobbit. After all, he is older, wiser, and has had some practice! My wonderful husband has already purchased the tickets...he says he will go with me even if I wear funny clothes....

My son has requested wall art for Christmas, and I am planning several things. I am so happy that he has asked me for some art! I think Meg could use some too, though I don't know if she wants any. Her apartment is as bare as his... barer in fact. My little brain is working overtime planning out stuff for a wildlife managers walls.... I have too many ideas, actually. I have to narrow it down. Fish, birds, dall sheep, bison, wolves, all have possibilities. Hmmmm......
By the way, go over to Lily's Quilts for a great giveaway... I love this collection of Kaufman's.

This year I will be adding a few baby quilts and quilted table toppers for a change, though the main things will be stuffies, as usual. I am still working on their names. Names are important, almost as important as their faces. Once their faces go on, they really develop a personality. This gentleman is an executive at Apple, a bit corporate, but a little Bohemian too. I think he made the collar himself, but I didn't ask how he got the feathers.... I don't think I want to know. Knotches on a belt? Surely not.....

There is so much you can do with this product, or with the Bosul and Pellon brand grid too.
