American Quilts

Have you ever seen that movie, How to Make An American Quilt? It was on HBO this morning and I had it on while grading papers. (The kind I can do w/ half my attention on it.) I'd seen the movie before and it's a lovely movie in many ways.

There are a lot of things to like about it, but mostly, I just really, really want two things.

I want friends like the women in that film. I know that at times they fight each other and hate each other. But they end up in the long run being friends who know each other.

I want to learn to quilt like that. And have a quilt like the one that Winona drags through the dirt like an idiot at the end.

Other than that, this morning has been PMSish, possibly flu-ish, and crabby. So I won't blog about that.
