The warm pieced quilt is now quilted! I got the last of it done yesterday while Mr Duyvken, G and J were at the Royal Easter Show. C and I stayed home where it was dry and warm and while she was sleeping I finished quilting the last few rows. I had hoped to quilt it while watching a satisfyingly bad midday movie on Channel 7 but it was some awful film starring Kirstie Alley as a dentist turned tooth fairy. Oh my.
I ironed while watching Partners in Crime earlier in the week and it was a perfect midday movie. It had a predictable plotline, some intense overacting, a bumpy script and enough over-the-top camera work to keep me happy. My favourite example of the latter being the scene that started with a close-up of the protagonists police badge, he then walked backwards out of the shot to reveal a busy airport escalator, the camera closes in on a man who then walks out of the frame to reveal that the FBI field agent we've been waiting for is, in fact, a gorgeous woman. Brilliant! And, she's the protagonist's first wife. Doubly brilliant! I am surprised to read that it was only released in 2000 though, The high waisted pants, shoulder pads and Krispy Kreme cop cliches had me convinced it was earlier than that.
