A Weekend Full of Sewing and Movies

I have had a very relaxing weekend before Christmas.

Yesterday I watched two movies in one day (the second time this month that I have watched movies!). We rented Julie and Julia and before lunch I watched Something's Gotta Give (With Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton).

I am agreeing with Betty -- there's a lot to be said for not overdoing the decorating and baking. Actually I have not done any baking since I made that one batch of shortbread.

I have to show you another perfect match purchase -- yes, it thrills me to no end! I got this tote bag a few weeks ago. It is the exact same color as this jacket and pullover top I ordered a couple of months ago.

I don't know what's with me and tote bags lately--before long I am going to be the tote bag queen.

This one is made of denim and, oh, so sturdy.

You have to really love yellow to wear this combo! LOL. A pair of brown jeans would tone it down a bit, I think.

I do love the color, but I don't love the fabric on the jacket. It pills something awful. I probably should have sent it back, but I never send anything back--too much trouble. If poor quality continues to be a factor, I just stop ordering from the company. I do love the fabric design and the fit, so I just pick off all the pills before wearing it.
I don't usually talk price, but I really must brag on my good deal. See the price?
Way too much for this bargain sleuth!

This was marked down to $15.99, I used a coupon to get another 30% off and free shipping!!! Can you believe it? I paid around $12 for the tote. Yesterday I was surfing through the site and it's in the outlet for $39.99. Oh, I feel so good getting such a great bargain!

Earlier in the week I started a new tree skirt to match my aqua, bronze, and green color scheme.

Between movies, I worked on it. I wrote about it on my quilting blog so I won't go into details here.

Today I am going to make a big pot of chicken noodle soup. I cooked the chicken yesterday, so it will be a quick light dinner.

I hope those of you getting hit with the massive snow (like Dianne) are all O.K. We have had our share of big snow storms, so I know what you are going through. Try to enjoy the beauty, but get someone else to plow out the driveway!


  1. Did you like the movies? I saw Something's Gotta Give(liked) and need to rent Julie and Julia.
    Yes, great match with your jacket and tote. I hate things that pill too. I have sent things back, but mostly I try and give it away if I don't like it.
    And very bold and pretty tree skirt!

  2. Zoey, you are an amazing woman..I love the way you get these good deals! That's like this girl I know who can shop at the Thrift Store and come out looking like a 'million bucks'! (maybe not a million bucks..but you know what I mean..grin) I simply do not have that talent..I'm almost afraid to buy something because no doubt it will be a lot cheaper somewhere else!!

  3. Good Morning:

    Wanted to take a minute to wish you a very Merry Christmas and tell you how very much I enjoy your blog.

  4. Merry Christmas Zoey! Wishing you all the special blessings of Christmas.
