9-Patch Beauty & Meryl Streep

The simple 9-Patch block in pastels.  This is such a pretty effect.

The quilting request was to enhance the diamond shapes, and quilt feathers.

That shell feather border is so pretty.

The backing was a nice muted fabric that shows the quilting beautifully.

Last night, I decided to watch the Golden Globe awards.  Normally, I don't watch award shows.  Hubby was glued to the football games, so I figured I could escape upstairs, keep one eye on the tv and the other eye on the weekend Sudoku puzzle.  Lots of pretty clothes, and lots of nice speeches.  I have no idea why Sylvester Stallone's daughters were featured... can anyone tell me?

Anyhow... Meryl Streep was honoured with the Cecil B. Demille award.  Did you see her speech???  She made me cry (and she commented on how great Canadians are 💗).  If you missed it, here is a link to a Youtube video of her speech.  Or, here is a link to a NY Times article with the story of her speech and Donald Trump's response.  Warning:  My Personal Opinion ... he is such an asshole.  Donald Trump, I mean.  I hope he does make America great again, but I think the personal cost to the citizens of the USA will be high.


  1. Agree with you completely on Streep and Trump. As to the Stallone girls, they were the Miss(es) Golden Globe this year - an honorary position given to the daughters of a famous Hollywood type. I think they just hand the awards to the actual presenters.


Please - share your wisdom...
